So, back from my hiatus which was entirely due to a lovely three week break including two weeks in Italy where, because of luggage restrictions (four of us travelling by car in Umbria and Tuscany) I finally succumbed and used the Kindle app on my iPad rather than pack physical books.

I have now fallen totally in love with the thing and managed to get through five novels which is the most I’ve read for ages. It has also left me with a backlog of posts for both here and Bride of the Screen God which I meant to catch up with before going back to work tomorrow, but best laid plans etc. I spent the time on laundry and going to see Looper (loved it) and visiting the Pre-Raphaelite exhibition at the Tate (overwhelming).

But new stuff also came into the Bride’s residence this week:

Film & TV stuff:

  • Cabin in the Woods – DVD and visual companion, thoughts on the film here
  • The Big Bang Theory S1-5 boxed set, because lots of people (well 4) whose opinions I value said I would love it
  • Marvel Avengers Assemble,  just because I had to have it (even though I still hate the title – as I said here)


  • Dolly by Susan Hill because we all need a ghost story for Hallowe’en
  • Garment of Shadows by Laurie R King, because I love Mary Russell
  • Frank’n’Stan  by MP Robertson which looks lovely and is a nice placeholder for seeing Frankenweenie when it finally gets out over here
  • the Pre-Raphaelite exhibition catalogue

I’m currently trying to decide which books to read next but definitely want to keep the momentum from my holiday going.

Bride of the Book God

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’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

If you would like to get in touch you can contact me at brideofthebookgod (at) btinternet (dot) com.
