lazy Sunday

Today I've mostly been reading Aimee Bender (thanks to Nik's endless prompts!) - dudes, check her out, she's the bomb - and watching Dan & Becs for the millionth time and laughing my ass off.  I reckon plenty of the humour of the series would be lost on non-Dublin folk, and I'm assume most of you fall into that category, but still, I'm having my fun. I've got a book review to write and a story crit to do, but in the meantime I've eaten my body-weight in chocolate-cornflake-cake.  I think I'll read The City And The City next.  I've no intention of leaving the flat today  My friend Kim is shutting down her blog; it was about her MA, and she's finished that course now, so it makes sense, but I'll miss it.  I can't wait to see her novella in print some day.  That's about all; carry on with your own Sundays, people.

definately read City and City next - i will be intrigued as to what you make of it.

sad that Kim's blog has ended. She should do another one.

Nik got me reading Aimee Bender too. She is indeed as good as he says.

Funnily enough, The City and The City is my next 'to read' also.

That's a bit creepy! If we both read the same book after that, we should go on Britain's Got Talent and wow them with our synchronicity. Or something.

Dave, I'll get going on it tonight and give you a preliminary report at work, if the confusion of freshers doesn't trample us all to death.

Nik, good call!

hehe! thanks for the sign-off mention (it's really odd to see you and Dave have a little talk about me - nicely so, of course)

I'll read Aimee Bender too now - and I won't have to take note of how she manages narrative shifts - bliss!

Oh - and CONGRATULATIONS for winning the Bristol Prize, I've only just come far enough out of my dissertation-dementia to realise, sorry x

Cheers, Kim! :-)

Dave - halfway through the book now, really enjoying it. It's been ages since I've read a good old detective tale, especially a peculiar one like this!
