Hi book lovers.

I will be sharing reviews of books I’ve been reading, with book-related posts thrown in for added excitement.

I don’t consider myself especially well-read though, which probably sounds ridiculous to those who know I teach English, studied literature at university and have never been without a book since I cracked the whole reading to myself thing before I even started school.


September 2018

I brought this home today.  Don’t come looking for me for a while.

At last, a voice we can trust.

The Short Story Dispenser

One of the highlights of visiting family, with family, in the US this August was discovering the free short story dispensers in a busy shopping facility.

The idea thrilled me to bits and the grandchildren were delighted to choose from 1, 3 and 5-minute reads, press the corresponding button and watch the story emerge on a ’till roll’.



Apparently, the idea was developed by a French company who abandoned the digital format as paper provides fewer distractions for the reader – no kidding.

What a super initiative this is.  If only there’d been dispenser at the airport.
