I know my brain isn't quite right when I can't even concentrate on #reading . Maybe it was the ten #books I read on holiday but I suspect I'm just not coping too well with the world at the moment Luckily for me I have a failsafe brain reset in the form of #terrypratchett #discworld novels. At least when it comes to reading anyway. Maybe it's because I have read them so much I no longer need to really concentrate on them or maybe it's because they make me #smile and #laugh out loud (hello funny looks from other commuters) but a few pages into #guardsguards and I am feeling a lot more human and nearly up to facing the world (just nearly) #bookworm #pterry #thewatch #icouldbeladysybil #mentalhealth #sortmyheadout #summerreading #anytimereading #cantbeatagoodbook #samvimes #mypoorbatteredbooks #readingonthetrain #readingformysanity
A Severed Head is regarded by many readers as the most entertaining of Murdoch's novels. As British novelist William Sutcliffe put it, "Of all the lots-of-people-screwing-lots-of-other-people novels this is probably the best, and certainly the weirdest. With less philosophising and more shagging than Murdoch's other books, it is a joy to see this wonderful writer let her hair (and her knickers) down." #irismurdoch #aseveredhead #threeandsix #charlesraymond #1963 #theresalwaysanotherstory pictureonapostcard #classicbooks #booklover #bookworm #bookshelf #bookshop #penguinbooks #penguinbooksuk #readtome #brainfood #itsjustmyimagination #bookcover #bookdesign #bookstagram #booknerdigans #cantbeatagoodbook #cometellmeastory #theresalwaysanotherstory
Two of my favourite authors. Both books read this week. Couldn’t put either down. Hope both authors hurry up and write another soon. Need to restock my library, need more books!! #bookworm #books #lovetoread #peterjames #sophiekinsella #surpriseme #deadifyoudont #needmorebooks #reading #library #read #cantbeatagoodbook
Like a lot of her writing this was banned in several countries when it was first published. It is a simmering tale of a woman rediscovering herself on the French Riviera. Separated from her husband and with her young son away, Ellen leaves behind the loneliness of London for a new life of excitement and sexual freedom. But she soon discovers that independence isn't quite so straightforward. Is August wicked or just a bit tired and paving the way for autumn? #ednaobrien #augustisawickedmonth #1969 #wingatepaine #possiblythebestwriterofourgeneration #bannedbooks #irishpen #ulyssesmedal #pictureonapostcard #classicbooks #booklover #bookworm #bookshelf #bookshop #penguinbooks #penguinbooksuk #readtome #brainfood #itsjustmyimagination #bookcover #bookdesign #bookstagram #booknerdigans #cantbeatagoodbook #cometellmeastory #theresalwaysanotherstory #pinchpunchfirstofthemonth #august

Rumour has it that Rod Stewart would recall the recording of "Sailing" being a challenge: he was awoken in his hotel room by a 10 am phone call from Dowd at Muscles Shoals, in which Dowd said "Get down here in half an hour; we've mixed the track and need the vocal"; Stewart (quote): "I was like: 'You're joking, recording at 10:30 in the morning. I need a drink to calm the old nerves'...There was nothing [alcoholic] to be had anywhere and I was terrified to sing without [a drink]"[6]..."I'd never sung anything in a studio without having a drink – let alone a big old anthem. And I'd never sung anything, anywhere that early in the morning. Got it in six or seven takes though." Ah bless. #rodstewart #sailing #sutherlandbrothers #islandrecords #whichonedoyouprefer #notevenaboutsailing #oneandsix #peterheaton #pictureonapostcard #classicbooks #booklover #bookworm #bookshelf #bookshop #penguinbooks #penguinbooksuk #readtome #brainfood #itsjustmyimagination #bookcover #bookdesign #bookstagram #booknerdigans #cantbeatagoodbook #cometellmeastory #theresalwaysanotherstory

So after seeing the teachers thank you bookmarks I was asked to create a special bookmark for a little girl who has been very brave over the last couple of months. I love the colour scheme chosen, and we had one very happy little girl today!! #cantbeatagoodbook #bookmarks #crossstitchaddict #occasionsbyjem

I’m getting clumsy 😜 don’t know whether it’s medication/age related but it’s bloody annoying,so last week I sat on a paint tin lid and this week knocked a massive cup of coffee over my bedroom carpet,of course it’s right in the middle of the room!! 6 cleans later and it’s fading but I know it’s there!!! (If anyone else had done it I’d have gone mad 😂So I’m having tea in the garden,let’s just hope I don’t smash the teapot 😂 happy Wednesday everybody #clumsy #insearchofarug #summertime #reading #cantbeatagoodbook #emmabridgewater
Bought Larry Murphy's autobiography today! Love a good read #whereisLarry #holidays #cantbeatagoodbook
I recently met a dog called Huxley at a party. He pulled over a table laden with glasses and olives in pursuit of a breadstick. v. naughty. But it set the standard for the night. There was music lots of music and after we’d picked up the shards we forgot about the olives. #aldoushuxley #musicatnight #essaysandbellelettres #penguinbooks #penguinukbooks #bestbooks #booklovers #completeunabridged #midnightblue #prussianblue #readingforpleasure #readtoforget #read #classicbooks #abookinthehand #cantbeatagoodbook #naughtydog

Bed rest book number 1... #silentcompanions an absolutely excellent read - a real page turner that I just couldn’t put down. A deliciously gothic thriller. #cantbeatagoodbook #whatyoureadingstephy #bedrestbookclub
