Afternoon in Guildford

Guildford - River Wey

Guildford – River Wey

A cold, wet, miserable afternoon in Guildford. It was cold and wet even before the rain came down, then it got worse.

The River Wey was running high, a few inches higher than last week. The heavy rain all afternoon, with more forecast over the weekend, is not going to help.

WHSmith, have Kobo Touch on offer £30, I think it was originally around £90, but unfortunately no information as discontinued.

Kobo e-readers are better than Kindle.

Excellent lunch in the Guildford Institute.

Library in Guildford Institute had Manuscript Found in Accra on display, and elsewhere where Paulo Coelho books shelved, Brida on display. They have good librarians in the Guildford Institute, all volunteers, more is the pity they are not given a decent budget. What can you buy with £25? It is a joke

Oxfam Bookshop, signed copies of 50 Shades of Crap. No takers.

Cappuccino in Harris + Hoole, very hectic downstairs, noisy upstairs.

Agatha Christie books

Agatha Christie books

Synchronicity: Previous day, discussing Agatha Christie, her life and books. On display in Oxfam shop, a collection of her books. Also, which I picked up, The Monk Who Sold his Ferrari, with a comment by Paulo Coelho on the front cover. Also had been discussing, Paulo Coelho. Discussion was with storyteller and scribe Steph Bradley. Her recently published Following Dreams, is a must read.
