Big weekend this weekend because it is the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators annual conference in Winchester. This year my training is over and I am officially the Front of House Coordinator. Gulp.
If you want to see all the shenanigans you can follow it all on Twitter using the following handle: #scbwicon18 AND/OR you can watch it live streaming. Yes! This year KidLit TV are filming the conference highlights. If you watch really carefully you might spot me.
Conference makes it sound boring, but because it is all about children's books it is definitely not boring. During the party we all dress up and this year's theme is 'Travelling Through Time' so I bet there will be some crazy outfits.
Very excited - can't wait!

I've been reading more grown-up books, like Hag Seed by Margaret Atwood but I have also just finished the first book in the Polly Pym series. This one has a red cover (I listened to the audio book, so can't post up the cover here) and is called Polly Pym and The Phantom Curse. It was really fun! If you want to read it for yourself the author is Laura Wood.
It is great listening to stories and something I remember doing as a child too. We had the Just So Stories on story tape and I remember them vividly.
Do you listen to stories? Do you still enjoy being read to?
I have an app of my phone called BorrowBooks which means I can borrow all kinds of audiobooks for free from my local library. A friend told me about it and I use it all the time. I love listening to stories as it feels like I can read and do other things at the same time - like walk all my lovely dogs!
