Now that I’ve finished my slow-motion house move and unpack, I’ll get back to blogging. In the meantime, here are some internet things…
Open Culture www.openculture.com
This website is amazing. It has links to all sorts of free courses from top universities in subjects from archaeology to languages to quantum electrodynamics. Pretty much everything really. There are also free audiobooks and films. It’s incredible.

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops http://jen-campbell.blogspot.com/
It all started off in response to a tweet by John Cleese, became a blog and now a book! (Illustrated by Brothers McLeod who are awesome). If you go to her blog, you can find author interviews, a ‘Harry Potter in a nutshell’ thing as well as loads of wonderful ‘weird things’, like:
Customer: You know how they say that if you gave a thousand monkeys typewriters, then they’d eventually churn out really good writing?
Customer: Well, do you have any books by those monkeys?

I know this is old news now, but I don’t why, I just love a despondant t-rex.
