Ramblings from my pages… #5

Welcome to the fifth instalment of Ramblings from my pages… – a weekly feature here on Keeper of Pages. This post was inspired by It’s Book Talk’s “5 on Friday: Things I’m Loving Lately” – it differs slightly, similar in that it will feature bookish and non-bookish topics, but different in that I will ramble about things I’m loving, hating, wishing for, links I’ve enjoyed, life updates – you name it, I may just ramble about it. The only staple feature of this post will be concluding it with a cool link I found around the web.

In this week’s ramblings, I’m talking about: Audiobooks, BookBuddy Pro, Lauryn Hill and Jhene Aiko. Whether you read the entire post or jump to the section(s) you’re interested in, I hope you enjoy my ramblings. Note: if it’s green, it’s a link, click it!

Word-of-Mouth Bestsellers Evening #Quercus2019

Word-of_Mouth Bestsellers

A little over a month ago, I received an invitation from Quercus Books to attend their Word-of-Mouth Bestsellers Evening, a night of wine, nibbles, and books, so many BOOKS! It was my first bookish event, and the most amazing evening. The ladies who work at Quercus are some of the loveliest women I’ve had the pleasure of meeting; I also met the author of Blackberry & Wild Rose, Sonia Velton, and I got to meet several bloggers and bookstagrammers, some I had been conversing online with for months, so it was lovely to meet them in person. As you all probably know by now, I met Beth from Bibliobeth – I’m far too awkward to turn up at one of these events alone, so I’m so glad I got to experience it all with Beth!

The Quercus headquarters are amazing, books everywhere, and when I reached the Flat layroom where the event took place, I was blown away – the presentation, the thought that went into it, everything was fantastic! There were even two flat lay tables so bookstagrammers could do their thing – Quercus are setting the standard!

I took so many photos, but loads of them were blurry, maybe one too many limoncello cocktails! Although I have no excuse for the first photo I took, because that one was blurry and I hadn’t even had a drink yet, but picture The Lemon Tree Hotel on a table surrounded by lemons and limoncello cocktails, and let’s begin a journey through the night, in books!
