Cambridge Wordfest

Andrew Marr
The Cambridge Wordfest is an event that is held twice a year. I had heard about it before but never really looked into what was offered. It is a place where authors come together and talk about their books and you can buy it and get it signed.

I found that one of the authors that my sisters-in-laws read was coming to this but we had a dinner to go to so it was unfortunate that they couldn't go.

I did happen to get into a few talks the following day on a range of topics that I am interested such as spending and happiness (How much is enough?), a Victorian woman's diary that lead to her disgrace (Mrs Robinson's Disgrace, which Kate said was doing well in America when I spoke with her) and Andrew Marr's, A History of the World, which was a program I was following on the BBC and it just so happens that I had bought another book of his to learn more about the history of Britain which has helped me out with this blog.

I know I am a nerd but I quite like the environment that Cambridge has. There are so many interesting avenues that this city holds that its a shame that we only have one life to do ti all in and I am starting in my thirties!

Anyways, if you are a keen reader or love to be in this type of environment, this is for you and chances are you will see me there.
