Just a quick note to mark the arrival last Monday, 18th of April 2011, of my daughter, Seren:


She turned up the same day as my copy of The Pale King, and I haven't even opened the book yet. That's totally a first.

Hello. Yay for babies!

On a slightly more serious note; if this becomes a pattern can I take this opportunity to 'bagsy' all your unread books?

Over my dead body, Judge!

Thanks, Susan!

Holly, come see us at the weekend! That's an extra-special request direct from the beanette.
