A Quiet Weekend

guardian-logo2Dan didn’t feel very well this weekend, so mostly we just sat, relaxed and read! We’d bought the Guardian, which is always good for a few hours, and both read “The Heart Fails Without Warning“, a succinct story from Booker-winner Hilary Mantel. The Review section also included another Booker snippet from Lucasta Miller, who came out and said, as far as it is possible for a Booker judge to come out and say, that her favourite was the Coetzee. She also suggested that the other judges recognized, too, that  Summertime is the book which will ‘last’. It read very much like a minority report. The paper also had some bad news for the Tories, and a piece by Polly Toynbee which Dan insisted was what he’d said.

We may also have watched The X-Factor…
