The Dustshoveller's Gazette: Crumbs!

Saturday, 28 August 2010


Spent part of Bank Holiday Saturday mooching round Blackwells and Waterstones in Oxford, after discovering that the Bodleian was shut because of the holiday. (Memo to self: check the website next time). After a minor tantrum outside the Divinity School, I reconciled myself to following up some references the following weekend instead. In the bookshops I had a relaxing browse, feeling smug that a new biog of Edward I has a citation of one of my articles in it, and also that Ian Mortimer's bestselling Timetraveller's Guide to Medieval England, has a footnote to another one of my articles. Small crumbs maybe, but it made me happy, saddo that I am. Then accosted in Waterstones by a properly sad person doing a booksigning of some terrible-looking (?privately printed) biographies, and vowed that if I ever get to the heady heights of doing booksignings (ha!) that I will never behave like that myself
