The weather is certainly not conducive to more Music From The Square Window and both Julie Andrews and village resident Margery Hookings need a well earned break. From music, Margery has focused on reading and has a new Lockdown project on the go to keep the spirit of reading in the village alive and connect as book lovers in the community.
Broadwindsor’s Book Exchange at the telephone box by Bernards’ Place became a book exchange early in the first Lockdown of 2020. With content for all ages, it has proven very popular indeed.
So much so that Margery now invites you to submit your book reviews on books that you have already read from the book exchange or a book you are planning to donate.
She will initially create a blog or a podcast her “Tales from the Phone Box Library” on her site MaddieGrigg.co.uk. When enough have been collected, Broadwindsor.org will create a page on the village website for them all to be available.
Later, Margery will include Kindle books and others you’ve bought, especially if you’ve really enjoyed them. If you’d like to contribute, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reviews and previews don’t have to be long or intricate. Here are a few guidelines for those reviewing:
- Reviews should not exceed 200 words in total
- Please include:
- Body of Review (no spoilers please).
- Would you recommend/not recommend?
- Send all reviews to email@example.com
Space is obviously very limited in the telephone box – please do not just dump books or boxes in there. The conditions are too damp to accept journals and magazines, so no more of those please. Thanks go to Ruthie Stevens & Wendy Shields – who has now removed all the cobwebs 🙂 – for keeping the telephone box tidy.
We are all aware of the rules – Please act responsibly
