Pickle Me This

January 15, 2006

Virginia was a blogger

I enjoyed making newspapers when I was little, with household or neighbourhood news. It’s a common childhood pastime I think, with often entertaining results. If you’ve ever read “The Golden Road” by LM Montgomery, you might remember the King children’s “Our Magazine”, which was really quite hilarious. Anyway, the Stephen children of Hyde Park Gate (who would become Virginia Woolf, Vanessa Bell et. al.) were also involved in such endeavours, and The Hyde Park Gate News has now been published in a book I would love to get my mitts on.

More reading, on small bookshops and where they’re going wrong. On why “Hostel” is alarming. On preserving twentieth century ruins. (You can Google these if you want to read them in full text for free). And we’re excited at our house because Globe Style says tea is cool. What validation!
