It seems I spent most of August camped out in my room reading up a storm. Even though it is now Autumn (the best of all the seasons) it still feels like this:
Netgalley has been feeding my bookish needs, which probably partly explains why I’ve read so many books this month – not that I’ve stopped buying them!

An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness by Kay Redfield Jamison
And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes

Bookish News/Events/Awesomeness for September:
Books are my Bag is happening on the 14th September. It’s all about supporting your local book shop, so get your book lists ready and get visiting – you’ll even get a nifty tote in return! Events are all over the UK (sadly none in my town, Brighton, but I’m going to visit bookshops anyway!)
Speaking of totes, on my next trip to London I am going to get myself an awesome Daunt canvas bag – just because.
I’m also rather desperate for their paperback mixed subscription – because who wouldn’t want books delivered to you all year!
And for any UK residents, here is a list of all September Literary festivals (not sure why there is a Spanish one listed.)
