Picked up off the book table at the Colchester 'Unconvention' gathering of Bookcrossers. I love JSP and have already started reading this one. Thank you very much. 


Journal Entry 4 by inkognitoh at London, Greater London United Kingdom on Friday, October 12, 2012

10 out of 10

I really enjoyed this insight into Janet's formative years. I really enjoy her ascerbic take on life and no-bullshit opinions. Having lived on the North End Road for many years before moving onto a boat and mooring in Perivale for large swathes of the summer, I really felt I got a vague understanding of the areas she was talking about.

Her strength of character and gritty determination to be anything other than bland is remarkable. I really admire her (have I mentioned that)? Anyway, thanks for a quick read and glimpse behind the curtain of what went into the making of the large character that is Janet Street-Porter.

I found 'Baggage' by Janet Street Porter at the Royal Festival Hall foyer. I glanced at it, wondered what it was doing there and then saw the Bookcrossing sticker and soon understood the concept so I brought it home. It is not a book I would normally go for but having glanced at the first few pages I am now quite intrigued and I think I will read the whole book. I will release it once finished and look forward to following its journey via this website.
