The Sunday Post

This is is Meme hosted by Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer and here are the rules.

It is your chance to re-cap your bookish week, what did your review last week, any new purchases, what will be coming up in your blog next week or generally anything you feel you would like to share with the blogging community.



So, what did I do last week?

I have been thinking long and hard, and read all your comments about the pressure of daily posting on the blog etc. and have make the decision to take it a bit easier with the book blog - go back to the fun part of it, and don't put myself under pressure to post reviews and take part in memes. And - it's fun again! I write a bit on the blog every day, but don't necessarily post it. But sort of polish the reviews a bit more and post whenever it's ready. Will hopefully have more time to comment.And I go back what I like = talking about books, reading, reading, talking about books, reading, more reading and even more reading. 


In other news….
Our local area is getting a bit excited. Plans had been unveiled to create a big entertainment park similar to Disney Land called 'London Paramount' (= the film company Paramount). They are currently submitting planning permission and have the agreement from the government. It will be build on an old industrial estate and is about 15 mins in the car from us! Of course, there are critical voices - the transport and environmental impact on the area etc. But I, for one, can't wait. Maybe anyone living near such venue can tell me more. 


Set to be named London Paramount Entertainment Resort, it is expected to create 27,000 jobs and will feature a water park, theme park, sporting facilities, an entertainment street, a staff training academy and about 5,000 hotel rooms.
