Yes, that’s right. I went to London to visit Katie Ellwood-Smith and we had a great time together gabbing and getting pedicures. London was still in the midst of its heatwave–despite SkyNews and the BBC claiming it was over–but I am not complaining. I love warm weather.
But how could I go to London and only buy three books?!? I bought more jars of marmalade than books. Oh the pain…I will have to remedy this by booking another London trip soon. (Or maybe that was my modus operandi all along?) 😉
A girl cannot live on pedicures alone. A shout-out, by the way, to Marina at Hand and Foot Spa in Wimbledon Village. Best pedicure ever! 🙂 A girl like me–book nerd that I am–needs books and plenty of ’em. I’ll have to figure out the best window of opportunity for a new London trip…and it must be soon. 🙂
So what books did I buy? A hardbound edition of Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier, the Red Book by Deborah Copaken Kogan and Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan (which I bought ages ago and somehow lost). I must replenish my library! 😉 I simply don’t have enough books… though I don’t think Tord will agree here. 😉
Happy reading (and writing)!
