Big Fan of Libraries and Alan Bennett
Borrowed Alan Bennett’s most recent book from the library…a treat as quite a fan of his. Love the varied tone and honesty of his diaries. Relish his appreciation of simple pleasures, such as ‘blackberrying’, outdoor sandwich eating and rummaging around in antique shops. His comments about social issues are often refreshingly candid and humane. ‘Keeping On Keeping On’ is a large book and therefore quite heavy, something the librarian obliquely commented upon as I placed it into my already fairly full shopping bag.
It felt like a privilege to carry it home with me.
Love and light and Happy New Year Sweeties!
Your writing voice is incredibly gentle and comforting. I don’t know if you remember me, but I was one of the librarians fawning all over you when we found out who you were. I’ve ordered your books from the online catalogue and can’t wait to dig in!
So grateful for kind comment dear Loretta! What a lovely encouraging chat we had in the library that day! So sweet of you to order my books, hope you enjoy them! Means a lot to me. Maybe one day you’ll write a book yourself, hope so! Big gratitude and love and sparkles, Grace xxxxx
