Was at the fantastic Mr B's Emporium in Bath last night to see Patrick Ness talk about his new book The Crane's wife. As usual there was great music by the Bookshop Band http://www.thebookshopband.co.uk/ and great food by Ben. The theme of the evening was folk tales retold and after Patrick spoke we were treated to recommendations from the staff and other attendees (Thanks to Cheryl http://www.cheryl-morgan.com/ for her recommendation for Deathless by Cat Valente been meaning to buy that one for a while.) As usual Ed got us with his recommendations, always worth chatting with him.
I'm reading Mohsin Hamid's How to get filthy rich in rising Asia at the moment which uses an interesting permanent present with 2nd person.
