I am on what feels like the longest train journey in history…
…so I thought I would pop up a quick post up about my trip to see my dear friend Mr Savidge Reads. He is having a bit of a tough time as you will have gathered if you are a regular reader if his blog, so it was really important for me to see him and hopefully take his mind off things a bit.
And what day it was, full of sunshine, book chat and a couple of shandies outside a Manchester bar. We topped it off with a delicious meal out, over which we discussed plans we have to host a readalong of a certain author we both adore. I got to meet his ridiculously gorgeous little cousins and then we watched Never Let Me Go which was very good actually and made me cry. I can’t believe how much we got done – I honestly wonder if time goes more slowly outside of London!
Of course I came away with books, including one set in Thailand (see previous post), Purge which I have been wanting to get a copy of, and a copy of Half of a Yellow Sun for my Dad. I also treated myself to a nice new moleskine notebook for my book notes.
And there are still nearly three days of the weekend to go, family and friends to see. Hope you are all enjoying a relaxing weekend and glorious weather wherever you are?
