Social Networking: The Way of All Flesh AND a Bloggy holiday

I am now terrorising the cyber community through not one but three channels. To make it easier for readers to get in contact I am now a fully paid up tweeter – and have set up a facebook group for readers of my blog. So, if you are a reader and or a tweeter or a person of the book, I would love you to join up.

Right now, I am off to the Lebanon for a week and so shall be on a bloggy holiday. I am taking such gems as Iris Murdoch’s The Book and the Brotherhood, A High Wind in Jamaica by Richard Hughes, VMC At the Still Point by Mary Benson, Hilda Bernstein’s The World That Was Ours and a book of which I know absolutely nothing: Forlorn Sunset by Michael Sadleir…. So let the sunbathing begin!

Bon weekend

  6. I loved A Highwind in Jamaica. Have you read Hughes' The Fox in the Attic? Also, Murdoch is one of my favorite authors, though I haven't yet read The Book and The Brotherhood.

    Have a wonderful and safe trip!

  9. I think The World that was Ours is probably my favourite Persephone; it's as gripping as a thriller.

  10. Have a great holiday Hannah. Will we see some photos on your return?

    I don't have Facebook or Twitter - but perhaps it's about time I did - I'm SO behind with the times!!

  11. Have a lovely holiday, Hannah. I'll be looking out for your review of High Wind in Jamaica. I think it is name-checked in E M Delafield's Diary of a Provincial Lady.

  14. Hi Hannah! Hope you are having fun in Lebanon! It's been such a long time since I was here, missed reading up your blog! Hope you are doing good. I missed out on blogging the last month or so because my mother has been ill. It feels great to be back. I'll be putting up a flurry of reviews! Do visit :)
