Journal Entry 1 by BookGroupMan from Criccieth, Wales United Kingdom on Monday, May 19, 2008

This has been sitting gathering dust for a long time, a celebration of reading from the World Book Day, 1999!

I didn’t read all these extracts, book previews, poems, recipes(?) and specially commissioned articles, but it was good to catch up on a few books that I’d missed; namely, in no particular order I enjoyed the supernatural Always by Michael Marshall Smith, the sub-pearl earring Tulip Fever by Deborah Moggach, the post-Diana opportunism in E/P by David Baddiel, Louis de Bernieres being funny and whimsical in Old Smokeytoes etc. etc. The non-fiction pick, and probably the only book from this collection that I will seek out, was an extract from The Year 1000, a fascinating glimpse at the turn-of-the-millennium (Y1K!!) with the Anglo Saxon Kingdom developing the intellectual, political and cultural mix that would help them/us (and through the English, Englisc, language) in a, ‘misty, north-west corner of Europe’ to establish the biggest empire the world has ever known and a 500 year legacy…that is still with us today.
