Five Things We Loved this week

Five Things We Loved this week

Our literary round-up of the last seven days.

Posted on 11th September 2015 by Sally Campbell
  1. Bond is Back –

    We loved the new Horowitz book Trigger Mortis so much, we created a replica of Ian Fleming’s writing room at the Piccadilly shop. Customers could interact with the 1950’s set and solve a Bond-like mystery based on the book (think Crystal Maze, if you are of a certain age) .

     

  2. Jack Reacher has Returned

    The twentieth outing for Jack Reacher is out - and it’s the best one yet. You have to love Jack Reacher. He has a rule: “If you want me to stop,” he says, “make me”. We won’t. Not when the writing is this good.

     

  3. Pop up a Penguin  –  

    Penguin has turned 80 – Happy Birthday, Penguin. And thanks to the pop-up shop in Boxpark, Shoreditch, we can have our fill of 80p titles (until Sunday) – much better for the waistline than cake.

     

  4. The Nopi Cookbook –

    The cookery book event of the season! Nopi: The Cookbook is a work of art in itself. And the recipes are delectable. This is Soho restaurant food – for your kitchen table. Yum.

     

  5. Salman Rushdie signed some books!

    We were lucky enough to be given signed editions of the new Rushdie, Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Days. If you want to get your hands on one, move fast  - they've been going down a storm.
