My favourite book award The Man Booker Prize announced it’s longlist. I was literally poised in front of our Mac in anticipation for the announcement.  You can read more about it on my post here

Finally this week saw the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. We were away for the midnight release but this was taken by Mel this morning, she hadn’t even left the bookshop before snapping this picture. No doubt this will end up on respective blogs once it’s been read

Mine is here  and Mel’s can be found here
