This Week In Books 17th July 2016

A new blog topic for a Sunday Afternoon while a home cooked meal simmers in the background.

This is one (the topic not the meal) that I have thought about doing for a while now. It’s by no means a groundbreaking original idea but none the less a topic I enjoy so there is no time like the present to turn it into a digital reality.

The plan is to provide a condensed version of the week’s book & publishing news. This will be something that I hope grows & develops in the future – so for now you get to be my literary guinea pigs 🙂

Currently Reading : Human Acts by Han Kang.

The Mermaid and Mrs Hancock’s early draft was a finalist in the Mslexia first novel competition in 2015. Due in 2018 this is predicted to be a huge coo for Vintage.

A town is Texas has fired it’s Library Cat named Browser. The town council took a vote on this and now looks to become a permanent move. Browser was hired to catch mice but became a lovable permanent fixture but has now by all accounts outstayed his welcome & now has 30 days to find a new place to live.
