'Sunday Snippet'

It has been a slow reading week. In fact, I've managed to do no reading at all. The reason is because that I have spent a lot of this week, writing some more of my short story. This is good, but I really need to learn to manage my time better!

So this week's 'Sunday Snippet', is from only a few pages further into Barbara Comyn's novel 'Our Spoons Came From Woolworths', than last week:

Page 26-'Sophia Fairclough was my new name and quite soon I became used to it and to being called "Mrs." and wearing a wedding-ring'

'Our Spoons Came From Woolworths'- Barbara Comyns.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend and if you have posted your own 'Sunday Snippet', don't forget to send me a link to your post!


  1. And are you enjoying the book?? I think that it stands alone.

  2. I've read some more of the book today and I'm really enjoying it. I love the central character and think that Comyns is a really good writer. She is able to combine serious themes and humour brilliantly.
