Welcome to Petrona

Welcome to Petrona. This weblog is about books I’ve read or read about, and various other topics that interest me. I often write about and link to articles on the web.

My other blogs are Librarian’s Place (a collection of articles sent to me by OWL service) and Web Writer, a collection of links from the Internet of use to writers. I save miscellenous links on Petrona 2, which also features my complete blogroll.

Please see the vertical navigation bar on the right for favourite links of various kinds.

Book carried on plane

The front page of today’s Times featured a montage of photographs (unavailable in the online edition) of transparent plastic bags being carried onto planes. In one of these was a book! Hooray. For information (especially for Jenny D) the title in question, clearly visible, is "10lb penalty" by Dick Francis. I hope the passenger concerned made it to their seat.
