Roaming the byways of literature

What do we all miss?

If any of us made a list of the activities we can’t do at present in the order we miss them, what would the list look like?

I belong to a book group and on my list that would be very near the top – probably in second place behind meeting friends for coffee. I think anyone who belongs to a book group would have a similar pattern on their list.

So it is nice to see that the Royal Society of Literature is starting a whole series of online book clubs.

Several of them are reading winners of the society’s prizes so they’ll be discussing up to date, good books.

One thing we all seem to be getting good at, is accepting alternatives to the things we normally do.

Royal Society of Literature – RSL Ondaatje Prize

The Royal Society of Literature has published the long list for this prize. Needless to say, I’d like to read all of them, and probably won’t even read a few.

The prize is worth a good deal in terms of money, but winning is probably more important to the writers than the swelling of the bank account.

Reading about success is so heartwarming; good luck to all of them.
