Sit up straight, everyone.
If you are reading this first thing in the morning
please make sure that you have brushed your hair
because today we are meeting the dovegreyreader.
I know! I know! You are reeling in shock…
dgr writes about books
(which I don’t, much)
What could we possibly have in common?
Listen up, you unbelievers…
I know someone who works in a bookshop,
And someone who has featured in a literary festival,
And a librarian, I know a librarian!
Oh yes! I can mingle confidently with the literati
without betraying the depth of my ignorance.
You should have more faith in me.
There are five things that I wish to share
from my audience with dgr…
dgr does not expect you to genuflect...
imagine...all that practising wasted!!
dgr does not expect an in-depth analysis of the Booker long list
as an entry requirement to meaningful conversation...phew!!
dgr reads five books simultaneously...so do I!!
(although, in my case, one of them is about maps)
dgr reads my blog before breakfast...
the pressure!! the pressure!!
dgr makes me laugh a lot
so that two hours pass in a flash.
Thank you, Lynne, for a most entertaining morning.
Oh...and just to prove that I am not making this up
Here is my autographed bookmark...
NOW tell me you are not impressed...
