I have realised that many good blogs have book reviews.  I assume this is because people think the bloggers are great and value their opinion and think a review will drive book sales into the millions.  So as my post on cats was so successful I decided to follow the herd (of cats) and do something similar.

So I have set my standard high, and with no expense spared have secured a book to review to demonstrate my great reviewing skills.

Dramatic

I know this is a high calibre book (despite the fact that I paid a bargain 75p for it from a charity sale) due to the vintage (vintage = old and expensive rather than old and in a skip for free) frontpiece.

I never quite got what a 'Preparatory School' was preparing you for.

So now I just have to read it and decide how many dinosaurs to award it.  I am sure the steady stream of free books to review will follow straight after.

 



On the subject of cats

I realise I have a problem.

It turns out that if you blog you should have a cat.  I don’t have a cat (well except a stuffed white one which was a birthday present from a friend who realised this was a necessary accessory for anyone wishing to take over the world from a hollowed out volcano complete with laser guided sharks and a heli-pad) and I am afraid that cat lovers (or professional blog followers who realise the importance of these things) will therefore not like my blog.  So here are some pictures of cats that I found on the internet.

Unfortunately none of them are either sailing or knitting – but hell – you can’t have it all….
