5 on Friday: 5 Bookish Posts

Bookish PostsFor your Friday reading pleasure, here are 5 entertaining, intelligent and informative posts from other bookish sorts I’ve enjoyed reading recently.

  1. A Place To Fall in Love I love this post from The Bookshop Around The Corner, and its a book shop I definitely want to visit
  2. I can’t wait to listen to this latest Tea or Books pod cast from Book Snob.  The promise of Jane Austen and a battle between Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility is just too good to ignore.
  3. Stuck in a book suggested The 1924 Project.  It’s an encouragement to book bloggers to read something from the year 1924. The reviews will be brought together and result in a lovely literary overview of that particular year.
  4. If you are at all bookish it cannot have passed you by that the winner of the 2015 Man Booker Prize was announced this week.  The winner was of course  A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James. I haven’t read the book and I’m not sure I will but I did enjoy this pre announcement review by Non Such Book.
  5. And finally, I enjoyed this post ‘In Praise of The Quiet Book’ from Isabel Costellos’s Literary Sofa.   I wasn’t familiar with the phrase ‘the quiet novel’ before, but having read the post by author Stephanie Butland  I realise its exactly the kind of book I love to read. “…about relationships, family, recognisable true-to-life situations with a dimension of reflection and depth”  

Have a wonderful weekend, filled with an abundance of reading opportunities!
