And Finally…

The sun has got his hat on and the end of the working week is almost here! So if you’re having a sneaky skive during those last few hours, here’s some bits and bobs to keep you occupied:

Everyone’s talking about…

Our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at Not Part Of Festival in Manchester this summer. Or at least, that’s all we’ve been talking about behind the scenes for the past few weeks, so we’re psyched to finally be able to tell you all about it. Point your peepers here for the full details, then skedaddle over to Skiddle to get your tickets for a mere £5.

News you might have missed…

The latest series of Penguin Essentials was launched yesterday. We featured them earlier this week, but even so we’re still swooning and working out which ones we want to buy first.

And we came across two beautiful books-based Tumblrs too – Writers and Kitties and Word Cupcakes. We defy anyone to be sad looking at them, even if you are stuck indoors on a sunny Friday afternoon!

In other news…

The London Book Fair is in town next week, and we’ll be there to get the lowdown. Are any of our readers going to be in attendance? Let us know which talks and events you’ve got your eye on if so!

Last but not least, little ol’ me was interviewed for the brilliant Great Dames blog, talking about For Books’ Sake and a few other topics too. Although you can probably guess most of my answers, Great Dames is a total treasure trove of wonderful women working on innovative and inspirational projects, so head there and have a nosey.
