I am jealous that its signed by the author.I also have that exact version of the shakespeare (although I have the second edition - I suspect the reason I have it is because two of the lecturers at university had a major hand in editing it....)
posting early tonight Mrs. M. Plans afoot for world domination?
Is that a paperback version of How To Eat? I don't think ours would hold up in paper... it's pretty beaten up as it is!Lucky you, to have had her sign it: is there a story to tell?N.
I'm laughing at trash's comment.And I have the same Shakespeare edition too.
Um, I just made Chocolate Pavlova by Nigella last night. Although I read her online and watch her on TV, yes it's still always on here.I'd LOVE to meet her. Maybe when you see her again (because I know you will) you could invite her here!Paola
We have a similar doorstop... although not signed by any authors.
I followed her at a respectful distance down the road once. She was having an animated and highly televisual conversation with her young son Bruno. I lost them as they turned into Eaton Square. I boarded a (real) bus and carried on my way with hoi polloi to murkier parts of London.
I have that tulip book!When we sold our old house, the decorator who arranged our house (to make it seem bigger and more attractive) put it in a prominent stack in the bookcase. I think he liked the cover, or maybe it was just the right color. Who knows.
I missed this yesterday. Great door stop! Usually door stops are unsightly, knew yours would not be. Plus fodder for a great post.
Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
