winstons coffee and muffins

Well I ve had a busy non blogging week spent a lovely day at skegness with two of the people I support ,we were lucky and got a nice sunny day .It has been a quiet week for book news .

BOOK NEWS –

The nobel prizes is announced on the 7th october .I did a post wondering who was going to win ,have since seen other and spoke to people ,my feeling is a joint Amos Oz /Elias Khoury award would be a great idea .Also Juan  Goytisolo s a writer that may deserve it the well known Spanish writer is considered one of the best from Spain in twentieth century .What are your feelings ? would you like some one realtively unkown in the english to win like recent years ?


Granta announced a list of writers in Spanish to read ,like there english list of writers to watch ,A lot of the names are new to me ,this seems like a great entry level to the next genration of writers from spain and latin america .
