“And I came to believe that good and evil are names for what people do, not for what they are. All we can say is that this is a good deed, because it helps someone or that’s an evil one because it hurts them. People are too complicated to have simple labels.”

The Amber Spyglass, Philip Pullman

Other Bookish Things:

I went to my local Waterstones the other day for a decent wander around (usually when I end up there, it’s because I’ve popped in just before I go home). This time I bought a copy of “The Girl on the Train” by Paula Hawkins. When we had the horrendous floods in December 2015, I was coming back from a day trip and got stuck miles from home due to lack of trains and road access. This meant I couldn’t get home for 2 nights but my friend’s mum kindly took me in. She let me read her copy of this book but I only got halfway through and because it was a library book, I couldn’t borrow it. Waterstones had the paperback on offer at half price so I decided to get myself a copy so I can finally finish it!

I found this article on My Modern Met about a couple who had a Harry Potter theme at their wedding – it’s simply stunning!
