Challenges - Signing up to 2 literary courses, one of which is a one day event at the Centre for Lifelong Learning, part of the Continuing Education Department at Liverpool University. This was for #5 of the 2009 Mini Challenges, to attend a book event. The event is called The Hour for Loving and examines how crucial timing is in love within literature, including the works of Shakespeare, Austen and Hardy among others. I attended the event yesterday and will blog about it soon.
The other course is for the new year and I will include details about it nearer the time.
Wishlist additions -
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger

Watching the brilliant Jonathan Pryce and the rest of the cast in The Caretaker by Harold Pinter at the Everyman Theatre in Liverpool last night. Very talented, very funny and totally fascinating to watch. Off the wall and brilliant.
