St. George, Bill Shakespeare and World Book Night. All in one day, 23rd April.
More than enough words have been written and spoken about any one of the three. Some titles on the list this year offer a brew to turn any night curled up by the fire into a stormy place populated by heroes and monsters. Others will take you to a different place
Check out the latest iteration of WBN at WBN 2022.
One of the books listed is an old favourite of mine. John le Carre's, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
A classic narrative, and character, brought to life by Alec Guiness and Gary Oldman respectively. I enjoyed both portrayals. If I had to choose, Alec Guiness would tip the scale.
Enough of the movies, WBN is about the printed word, an annual celebration, so go celebrate!
PS, in my neck of the woods Williams who have a reputation for being solid, reliable steady characters become 'Bill.'

Read All Ab'aht it!
The cry of the vendor on the street corner. Rarely heard today. The world of the media has changed.
The means of cummunication, of getting the news out may differ. The invitation to "read all about it," is at the heart of the business, by email, Twitter, website, or blog.
Read all about it, and the breaking news is the coming merger of Smashwords and Draft2Digital. Without further ado, I'll hand you over to the relevant parties, via Smashwords blog and Draft2Digital
Two independent platforms joining forces
As Mark Coker calls it in his post at smashwords blog, not an end, a beginning.
Here's to the future!
Take care, everybody.
