Friday 24 October 2014: Bookfest!

Down to the Edinburgh radical book fair where they were showing 'Scotland Yet' - a full length film of the run up to the referendum. From the Yes side, of course, but it was pretty good, and the history stuff of how we got to here was hard to argue with.
Anyway here's a book which was crying out for me to buy. Except I have no need of such foolish entreaties. No, what rather more attracted me was a new edition of Boswell's Edinburgh diaries. This appealed a very great deal -

Friday 6 September. Laboured some. In the evening was seized with a restless rage for tavern company.

So, on the way back from Leith jumped off that 34 bus and there were some bestest chums . Miserabilism, begone!
