    Oh god, I love Fridays at the moment.

    You like Mark Steel too? ❤ 😍
    I loved his radio and TV series called The Mark Steel Lectures.

    I've decided that your book shelves are too tidy, they put mine to shame.

      Haha. Thank you. Makes me think every Friday should be book day on this blog.

      I’ve never actually heard of The Mark Steel Lectures but will definitely be checking them out now. Reasons to be cheerful is a brilliant book.

      My bookshelves are too tidy because I cleared them of all the crap I had on them so I could take a better/clearer picture. Maybe one day I will post a messy shelfie

    We hope you’ll add our book to your collection!
