I do hope you are all OK in this appalling weather. Fennell Towers is taking a battering from the wind and rain, but thankfully no damage, other than a very soggy garden. Keep safe and warm, and whilst we wait for it to pass, entertain yourself with some literary links.
BBC Books and Authors has a wonderful podcast with some recent Children’s Laureate. I think this is a wonderful position, and those that have held it have produced some of my favourite children’s literature.
BBC Radio 4 Extra is re-running Have His Carcase by Dorethy L Sayers, a good cosy crime for these stormy evenings.
Another winner from the BBC with Donna Tart’s The Secret History. I have never read this, but it is on the wish list.
Over at The Guardian, Joanna Trollope and Fay Weldon are having a natter about Jane Austen. It has been a long, long time since I read any Austen, perhaps I should dust one off and give it a bash.
Lit Addicted Brit has joined the Classic Club in an attempt to read a more “classic literature”. It is a very interesting list, with some I wouldn’t have thought of as classics, but deserve to be read.
If you are up for an interesting reading challenge, Peggy Ann is hosting a Read Scotland challenge. Her list of Scottish Authors is fab, and I shall put a few of them on my wish list.
