As an antidote to my previous grumble, here’s a nice thing about blogging. Back in the mists of time (5 years is a long time in blogging) I made contact with Maureen at Random Distractions, a lady who lives in Devon and has all kinds of interests which she shares with friends and followers. On her site I’ve found recipes, knitting patterns, and book recommendations – many of which have turned out gems. I sent her a copy of ‘Kettle’ for old times’ sake and am delighted that she liked it enough to give it this lovely review. She also makes an interesting point that the cover of modern novels rarely reflect the actual story – don’t think that’s always true but I can certainly think of books that have turned out very differently to how I expected from the cover image!
Maureen also has a family connection to The Dabbler– a lively culture blog with its own book club where I’ve gleaned some great freebies. Best of all, we’re planning to meet up in this quirky garden centre one of these days.
You never know what else you might find.
