Edinburgh International Book Festival 2017: Meeting David Mitchell

Book Festival Goodies


The Edinburgh International Book Festival is always a highlight of my year. This year I didn't  have much time on my hands, but when I heard that David Mitchell was in town, the only living author whose work I have read almost in its entirity (with every intention of filling the gaps still inmy literary knowledge), I knew that I must go and see him. I booked tickets the moment they went on sale and got ready for a long wait. Last night, that long wait finally came to an end.

Movie Review - The Dark Tower

(source:IMDB)



I have been a huge Dark Tower fan for years and it remains my favourite book series after The Lord of the Rings. So, I looked forward to this movie with great anticipation - and once I realised it was not actually a remake of the books, but a sequel I was even more excited about it. After all, with no need to stick exactly to the source material, what could possibly go wrong?

Bunecdotes # 9 - The Escape Artist





 Rabbits may look sweet and innocent, but these little bundles of joy live for mischief. Some, like Gizmo, can be told off so you can get on with your day. Others, like Lola, will need to be physically moved from offending objects or places and even then it's a game for this happy binkying helicopter.

Why Write?



A few days ago I stumbled across this quote on Facebook and it got me thinking. At which point in my life did I realise that writing was more than a fun past time? And what do I do to keep it so?

Bunecdote # 8 - Bunny Burrito



Bunny Burrito (n.): a towel/blanket wrap with a rabbit head sticking out at one end. Used to prevent escape while Bad Stuff is happening.

Bad Stuff (n.): nail clipping, medicine, force feeding, ear drops, and anything else bunny might disapprove of.
