Our Week in Books #26

Number 26?! Eek, that means we’re halfway through 2014. Frustratingly, after a great start, I’m now a whole week behind on #bookadayuk but I refuse to give up after doing 2/3 of the month. However, I’ve also got two imminent work deadlines, so this may slip well into July…

Today is the first day of Independent Bookseller’s Week, so probably only fitting that until yesterday we’d got two books but er, that increased a bit today. Oops… Well, Mostly Books have some excellent titles at a very special price at the moment 🙂

Currently we’re I’m addicted to loom bands. It’s therapeutic, okay? 😉
