off to Lincoln, life by Shakespeare... and another new cover

Current work: MH duo book 1
Listening to: various chilling out
Reading: thinking about the next on my TBR pile…

Am off to Lincoln today after school for the event at the Lincoln Book Fair. Back on Monday with a report and pics.

In the meantime, I nicked this one from Michelle. Hmm. Not quite the one I would've picked and not one of Shakespeare’s better plays, in my view. My fave is Antony and Cleopatra, for the sheer poetry, closely followed by King Lear, Macbeth and The Tempest. I have a bit of a soft spot for Twelfth Night as well, and Much Ado (best romcom ever).

Your Score: Romeo & Juliet
You scored 33% = Tragic, 37% = Comic, 60% = Romantic, 16% = Historic




You are the Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. Perhaps one of Shakespeare's most memorable works, Romeo and Juliet tells the story of two star-crossed lovers of warring families and their untimely deaths in each other's arms. What your score tells us about you is that you are most likely a romantic person who is willing to go to extremes for the ones you love. For this, your family and friends love and respect you (even if they may tease you from time to time). While you may be a bit of a fickle-heart, you are also a spontaneous and adventurous person with a big heart and a lot of love to give. We certainly love you, and we're sure that a lot of other people do too!

Some more author copies arrived yesterday - the second edition of How To Research Local History. Again, a lovely cover. I've been very blessed, this week.

That's a fantastic cover!

Also, the German cover--or rather the models--for Breakfast at Giovanni's are exactly what I pictured the two to look like.

Anyways, it's nice to read your blog again!
