|My extended family at Popham Beach after Christmas|
On these cold January nights, there is nothing I like better than curling up by the fire with a good book. Even before it won the 2011 Man Booker Prize, The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes was on my to read list. I’ve never read anything by this critically acclaimed British author and this one is set (initially) at an English boys school, just like my work in progress. I was therefore delighted to receive this novel as a Christmas gift from my British in-laws, especially since it had the gorgeous UK binding. It was purchased from a favorite bookstore, The Wallingford Bookshop too.
Movie Watch: I've added a disappointed film review to the end of my War Horse post.
Blog Time Note: on some Wednesdays my weekly post might be published later than my usual 7am. I'm trying to restructure my time so that the other 4 week days are strictly novel writing days.
