We're into the final week of Women on the Page - sad news, yes, but nil desperandum, Penguins.

It just means there's even more for you to read, both on the blog and over at Five Dials. Enjoy.

The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds. Rest in peace, Sir Terry Pratchett.

A Just Giving page donating to the Research Institute for the Care of Older People (RICE) has been set up in his memory: www.justgiving.com/Terry-Pratchett

Hornby's insights into the male psyche re life, love and romance, as well as the protagonist's near-total obsession with music, were hilarious and (probably) spot on. The film adaptation was great, too. One of John Cusack's better films:)

...THE ROAD TO LITTLE DRIBBLING will be with you all this Autumn. In the meantime, why not take a moment to appreciate how marvellous this cover is.
