My eldest daughter always gets me a couple of books for Christmas. This time it was two great old books of Victorian photographs of London. She searches them out in second hand bookshops and never pays full price. Just as well considering how much she spends on her mobile phone account  :o

Ooh, they sound great, James! Next month I'm going to be directing a play that's set in Victorian London, so I've been Googling a lot of Victorian London images lately!

 

I received The Annotated Poe, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them: The Screenplay, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (illustrated by Jim Kay) and Sci-Fi Chronicles. :)

I'm directing Gaslight for my local amateur theatre group. I'll probably post updates in my own reading thread over the next few months. :)
