The Librarian

For those who want something different for dinner tonight ...

... I've dumped a load of links into the "Food & Cookery" section of JLS' Favourite Oddities & Curiosities. For now everything is in a single list by sitename ... I'm already seeing the need for future categories of shopping, specific foods, specific cuisines, but I don't feel like playing with frames today ... so happy exploring!

P.S. Do let me know if anything isn't linking/is linking to the wrong site. Or if you know of a good site that should be included.

Just finished reading ...

... Posy Simmonds' new book, Tamara Drewe ... a wonderful blend of prose and graphic, as well as being a darned good story. Can't wait for her next one. :D

If anybody out in the e-verse wants a sample, then you'll be glad to know that as well as being in print, "Tamara Drewe" is available online here (the tale was originaly published in these instalments in the Guardian before coming out as a book ... the book version has been reworked/rewritten in spots, so differs from the original, but the plot is the same).
