winstons coffee

Well its sunday I ve just done my BBAW links for my nomination .I ve had a busy week at work ,but that said I managed to get a bit of reading done all said ,I found a new crime writer I love the Polish writer Marek Krajewski his Eberhard Mock has been a revelation to me ,Krajewski is a master of description so I feel I ve spent a couple of days in 1919 Breslau not 2011 Derbyshire which is good the weather has been terrible here this week.I went to town yesterday with Amanda and pick some books up from Oxfam and a half price copy of the new Julian Barnes which is longlisted for the Booker prize .Amanda went to Bakewell yesterday so we had some Bakewell tart for our supper last night ,the original tart is so much tastier than the other ones you can buy from elsewhere in the country .so that’s been part of my week ,I m keeping  an eye on the hurricane and hoping people are safe.

How has your week been ?

    Sounds like you had a great week, Stu, and I am envious about your book purchases. The Barnes is not out in the US yet so I have to wait awhile. I am going to have to search for the Breslau books at our local mystery bookshop. Have a great week.

    It was a rather quiet week. last weekend we took son to college (a few weeks early, as he is staying at my sister’s). wow, a whole week without appointments and running around getting him ready.
