Really Random Tuesday is a meme created by Suko at Suko's Notebook which is a way to post odds and ends--announcements, musings, quotes, photos--any blogging and book-related things you can think of.
On Saturday we went to Brighton to do a little clothes shopping. The whole family were in desperate need of some winter clothing, so we spent all day there shopping. As we approached Brighton we became aware of how fierce the sea was. The waves were coming in fast and furious and I have never seen them so high.
I don't really have a lot of bookish news to tell you this week. I did finish Her Fearful Symmetry and I have to say I loved it. I can't review it until after my book club meeting, so it will be about a month before I let you know all my thoughts.
I began reading The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud and fell in love with that from the first page. It is a wonderful book for this time of year and definitely worth a read.
This week, I hope to spend some time planning for NaNoWriMo next week. My trial run is still going strong and has got much easier as the week's have passed. It will need a lot of rewriting, but I am pleased to have nearly all the basic story done.
I did receive The Persephone Biannually magazine this week and I hope to make a purchase soon. Claire over at The Paperback Reader is organising a Persephone Secret Santa for bloggers. If you click here, you will be able to read all about it.
Speaking about bloggers, I really did want to send my deepest sympathy and my biggest hugs to Dar over at Peeking Between The Pages. Anyone who reads Dar's blog, will know all about her beautiful companion Buddy, who passed away this week. For the past two years, in fact since the very first day I started blogging I have loved reading all about Buddy's antics, so it was so sad to hear that he had gone. If you haven't been over to Dar's blog this week and missed her eulogy for Buddy, then please go over and show her your support.
That's is all my randomness this week. I look forward to hearing all the random things that happened to you too.
