If We Were Having Coffee… On March 12

Hello my lovelies!

How are you doing today? It’s nice to see you for our Weekend Coffee Share. Have you noticed anything different here? Study.Read.Write now has it’s own, fancy dotcom domain!

We’re all readers here, right? How about we meet at my local library for their Annual Book Market and then go and grab a coffee at one of the cafés in town?

Sounds good, right? I’ve got loads to tell you, so we’d better find a place with unlimited coffee supply.

A few days after the post was up, the photographer contacted me and sent me a bill for “release from liability of copyright infringement for unauthorised and uncredited” use of his image.
