I’m a bit under the weather, so in lieu of a proper post have a poem.  Not by me, obviously.

This and other literary prints are available from Obvious State which is a shop on Etsy run by a chap called Evan Robertson.

Dull Books

Every Friday the Scottish Book Trust have a book related game on Twitter. Here are some highlights from last Friday (June 29) to brighten up this otherwise distinctly grey Monday afternoon…

  1. scottishbktrust
    It’s Friday book game! To make summer seem better we want to make everything else duller inc. book titles #dullbooks e.g. Tales of One City

  3. I Found HIM, but he has different names depending on where you are in the world. He’s Waldo in the USA and Wally in some other countries. What do YOU call him?
