FOOTNOTES: To Eastbourne this week for their annual Book Festival, to read other authors work to potential buyers. I am always in awe these days of the various devices one can purchase that have books in their hundreds on them, and being able to take something like that on holiday is a boon for me, as I so often, start on a book, I had thought ideal to read on the beach, only to find, after a few chapters, that I was being bored to death. However, I was also pleased to see at the Festival, that traditional hard and soft copies of books were selling extremely well. I have been an avid reader since I was a boy and was a regular weekly borrower from our local library. Indeed, whenever we moved to a new part of London, the first thing I would seek out would be the local library. Very early in life, I began writing short stories myself, and during periods of waiting for rehearsals etc., to begin, I would be jotting down ideas for plots that came to me. Now, I am pleased to say my stories win prizes and I enjoy writing them. I am currently engrossed in a biography of that ‘grande dame’, Edith Sitwell and highly delightful it is, so I still read a great deal. The Festival was well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by all those who came, and went away, clutching their freshly purchased copies. Proof really, I suppose, that despite all the advances of modern science, as welcome as it is, nothing is as good as the feel of a book in ones hand. Enjoy your week and go safely.
