Pretty excited!!!

Good morning you all.

I’ve been pretty busy,

the cold is also,

back,

brrr,

yuck.

To which I say,

‘It’s February genius, what do you expect!”

I have been juggling books all week,

reading,

Study In Scarlet,

before bed,

a few pages,

every day of Susan Sontag’s On Photography,

which I am particularly,

interested in,

given my new photography,

well,

let’s call it,

what it is,

obsession

😛

almost finished,

Jeff O’Brien’s The Couch Sessions,

which I should write about,

on the weekend.

Have been enjoying,

Zoe Amos’s Superior,

an adventure romance,

which I will also be writing about,

soon.

But,

the big thing,

this week,

is the re-reading of Helene Hanff’s,

The Duchess Of Bloomsbury Street,

in preparation,

for something,

that has me major,

hyped,

excited,

nervous,

yep,

all of those,

I will be participating,

in my first podcast!

Ok,

so let me tell you about it.

On face book,

I have been part of a group,

known as:

Friends of Helene Hanff,

because of my undying love,

for her works,

especially,

as those of you, who have been following, the blog for a while, know,

84, Charing Cross Road,

which,

I believe,

may be,

my favourite book.

It certainly is the book,

I have read most often,

and,

my pleasure,

in it,

has in no way,

diminished,

with time.

So long story short,

a fellow member,

asked me to be friends,

on face book,

and,

I accepted,

I don’t always accept,

I check to see,

if we have friends,

in common and stuff,

but,

this time,

I accepted,

right away,

I liked her face.

After a few days,

she contacted me,

and,

told me about her website,

http://beabehn.com

and about her,

“Women A’Loud!”,

 

We are Women A’Loud! and We are Reading Through It!

Women A’Loud! is a weekly broadcast that spotlights women through words, writing, reading, and wit. We capture a glimpse of our world every week through a few unique segments:

and,

she asked me to,

participate in a discussion,

of,

the great Helene’s work.

I listened to some of the broadcasts,

you should too, informative and lighthearted, nice vibe,

so again,

long story,

not so short,

😛

on Sunday,

we will be skyping,

and,

the broadcast will air pretty soon.

So, that’s what I have been,

up to

🙂

I will post,

all the details,

pretty soon,

but,

I wanted to tell,

you all,

about it,

’cause it’s important to me,

and,

I thought you might get,

a kick out of it.

Later girls,

BB
