I have that very volume of letters by my bed, awaiting the time when I can concentrate on them...when I've finished the work I'm currently nearly at the end of. Can't wait...

Nicola

Beautiful photographs, Karen. I read this last September and I couldn't put it down. I've still got Decca by my bed though. Haven't got around to that one yet ...

Ah! I am unspeakably jealous! It's a good job I didn't know it was happening, otherwise I'd probably have moved Heaven and Earth to attend, with no good result for my wallet. Oh, what an event to attend. I shall have to be content with the letter Charlotte Mosley sent when I wrote to say how much I loved the book. Still far and away my favourite read of the year - I still feel bereft, not having new letters to read. Maybe they'll make another dozen volumes...

Oooo, I bought the book at the start of the year and am still trying to work my way through it. I've just finished Nancy Mitford's 'Love in a Cold Climate' and 'Pigeon Pie' though, very funny stuff. You can definitely see that the sisters had a sense of humour!

How thrilling, and yet too bad about the signing.
Those muffins below look fantastic. Someday I'll have to buy a scale and learn to bake the UK way.

I've heard so much about this book -- I really must break down and get a copy. I love the glimpse one gets into the everyday lives of people by reading their letters. It's my favorite sort of social history. I think one can learn much more about a period in history from a collection of letters than would ever be possible from a history book.

I'm so jealous. A ticket was waiting for me at the Yurt but I couldn't get there in time... Although I'm glad it was as interesting as you hoped, I sort of wish people had told me that I hadn't missed much!
