I thought it would be fun to do an A-Z of my blog (too much time on my hands?) so here we go…
A is for ‘Awkward!’ A series I wrote about those slightly dodgy life situations. These posts are on my Writing page.
B is for Books. You probably know that I like them a lot. All my book reviews and bookish features can be found on my Reading page.
C is for Cats. I love cats. My favourite books when I was very little tended to feature cats. I love cats. Did I mention that already?
F is for ‘Film of the book’. A monthly series in which I compare a film adaptation to the original book, which has included The Shining, Jane Eyre, The Great Gatsby and The Exorcist. The posts can be found on my Misc page.
J is for Job interviews. To gain your sympathy / amusement, I have written about my worst ones.
N is for N S Ford. Hi there 🙂
O is for ‘Ordinary people of the past’. A series in which I commemorate the folk who aren’t famous enough to be celebrated in a Google Doodle (nearly everyone, then). You can read the posts on the Misc page.
P is for Poetry. I’ve been known to share the occasional verse on subjects such as soup, procrastination, the lockdown and a bookish version of Hamlet’s ‘to be or not to be’ speech. I’m also a fan of Philip Larkin’s poetry.
Q is for Quite bizarre. I wrote a post about some weird books on my shelf and it’s still one of my most viewed.
R is for Recommended books. Go to this page to see a selection of books in various genres which get my seal of approval.
T is for ‘Time-travelling bookworm’. This series started out as an adventure to a particular month of a particular year. It was fun but time-consuming (ha) so now I just use a random generator to choose a book from my reading record and then say if I liked it or even whether I remember it.
U is for Ugly book covers. I know, I know, don’t judge a book by its cover…
W is for Writing. Visit this page to see my various bits of creative writing, plus posts about the writing process and blogging.
X is for Excel (sort of). I use this Microsoft programme to record my reading, plan my blog posts and choose what books to re-read.
Y is for Yangtze. One of the Sacred Rivers visited by Simon Reeve in his TV documentary. My reviews of many of his other shows can be found on the Misc page. My review of his book Step by Step is also one of my most viewed posts.
Z is for Zephaniah, Benjamin. One of ten writers I would have a coffee with.
