As a book lover, I've received a bumper batch of wonderful reading matter for Christmas. Have to allow time for reading (for fun), but I have a goodly pile for review. These will appear here over the coming month, but already, too, there are lots of interesting media gatherings ahead.

Here is a fun book compiled by George Courtauld, Daphne Field and their talented team. The book is tiny, priced at £2.95, but has sold remarkably well around the world. Hurrah for Waterstone's and all their friendly Managers. Monies raised from selling the book will go to EWAG (Essex Women's Advisory Group) - they carry out such wonderful work. It seems that ESSEX GIRL is now very much a 'valued brand'.
