I doubt I have many football fans on my friends list, but this FA decision sucks, people. It's wrong on a football level - and it's also really sexist, IMHO. Please sign this petition and voice your objection: http://www.petitionbuzz.com/petitions/doncasterbelles 

What's happening?
Doncaster Belles have been relegated two games into the current season to make way for Man City. 

Why does it suck? 
The Belles aren't bottom of the league by any measure - they didn't come last, they don't have the lowest turn outs, they aren't the worst funded. 

Why is it sexist, IMHO?
It seems like they've been relegated to make way for a big name from men's football. That's right - it's not enough that men's football dominates the headlines and the fields, that male England players get weekly salaries which are more than the entire women's England team earn from football in a year --- now the women's league has to match the men's. Well sod that. Donny are a great team, they're not placing top but they're scrappers, and do not deserve to be kicked out like this. 

Shame on you FA.

OK, you need this book! And the film is amazing, too. Back me up +Monique van Beek. It's 99p in the Kindle Daily Deal, so act now. 

Right, the book. It's the story of two Dutch sisters, twins and very close, whose lives take very different paths. After their parents die, the girls are separated and sent to relatives - one in Germany, one in the Netherlands. You think you know what's coming next? You don't. #excellentbook

OK, this is an odd one, but probably good - a free Neil Gaiman story (which is in Fragile Things, if you have that) but it's not free to download right now, it's free to pre-order and will be delivered on the 18th. And comes with a preview of his next book.

Tell me what to read next! Comments on the blog, please, or I won't count them (and will get very confused). Right now the sole vote is for The World According to Garp...
