One day towards the end of last week I got really fed up with sitting in front of the computer, and decided to take a walk in my lunch break. I am notorious for bottling out of exercise and so thought having a purpose to the walk would make me stick to the plan, so I aimed for the London Review Bookshop near the British Museum, where I thought I’d just pick up the most recent copy of the magazine. Well it didn’t quite work out like that, and I had to confess to the Book God the following purchases:

Victorian Sensation by Michael Diamond

The Sea Lady by Margaret Drabble

Angelica by Arthur Phillips

None of these were on my wish list so I had no excuses except that they seemed really, really interesting. And at least I did remember to get the LRB as well.

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. Iā€™m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence
