As most of you will know I have joined the wonderful world of Twitter. Despite my initial scepticism I have become a bit of an addict. I'm not sure why I'm so surprised that I'm hooked, I am nosey my nature, and Twitter is a little snapshot of people's lives! With the exception of peeking in to other people's lives, Twitter is also proving to be very revealing in all aspects of literature.
I also noticed an advert for the first Portsmouth Book Fest, which runs from Saturday 23rd October to Sunday 14th November. I always love hearing about new literary events, its restores my faith in the publics love of literature. The Portsmouth Book Fest only had a few events, but best selling authors Jacqueline Wilson, Josephine Cox and Louise Rennison are there, as well as other local author Isabel Ashdown, amongst others. I really hope the festival is a success, and returns next year.
