The Week in Books: July 12 – July 18

Also when you’re on holiday, there’s often air conditioning in your room – which I definitely don’t have in my hundred year old house…

I didn’t actually buy any books last week – although the pre-order of the Helen Ellis turned up which was a lovely treat.

Bonus photo: So I got out of the house this week – to somewhere other than the park! We took the nieces to to Thorpe Park for a birthday treat. It was the most people I’ve seen in one place for a long time, but it was a lot of fun, and I only got a little patch of sunburn on my neck.
