Rainy day reading

I decided to make today a reading day.  It’s been raining pretty much all day and it’s starting to get really cold so I didn’t need much convincing to stay inside and catch up with some reading for my MA.

I’ve now read this biography of Byron (last week’s charity shop purchase) from cover to cover.  Although the author’s writing style feels a little dated, it has certainly been useful in filling in the gaps in my knowledge regarding Byron’s life.

It’s always worth checking through the books in charity shops as you can often find a little treasure like this.


Blogging everyday during November

Well, I’ve signed up to NaBloPoMo, which I’ve very excited (and ever so slightly nervous) about completing!  I’m pretty busy at the moment as I’m in the middle of researching and writing an MA essay on Byron, so it could well be that a few of my blog posts reflect that. Byron is pretty cool though so that shouldn’t be too much of a hardship!  I’m also busy creating new arty pieces and I’ll photograph and write about those too.

I’m really looking forward to reading what other NaBloPoMo bloggers write – I’ve already followed a couple of new people from the blogroll list.

If you want to join me on this intrepid blogging adventure, click on the link above and follow the instructions.  You have until 5 November to sign up to the blogroll.  Hope to see you there.

Wish me luck…!
