|what a lot of books -with thanks to Colchester Library/Essex County Council|
|and a handy place for my bike too!|
But I do have a problem with a book festival - I love to read, but I struggle with the point of people talking about reading. Still, that's just me and I hope to get to some events. Don't knock it until you've tried it! Many events are held in local libraries and if you're anywhere near please go along - tickets are from the Mercury Theatre box office. Vince Cable, Richard III, Orson Welles, Queen Victoria, they're all there, and many fictitious characters as well. See you there!
Song - Everyday I write the Book - Elvis Costello - though, I always thought, one of his less-successful songs, until it was rescued by Ron Sexsmith. .
