We're going to the Proms!*

Free tea!**


* We have tickets for tonight's Proms concert, a Tchaikovsky/Shostakovich/Prokofiev fest. It's the first time going for both of us.

** This month's IMBB theme is Tea - and the date is July 31st, if you care to participate. In honor of the event, Adagio Teas is offering free tea samples to IMBB participants and food bloggers in the U.S. and Canada. If you're interested, the details are here.

It's a smaller bookstore, but the selection is rather better than I initially thought a few months back. I was pleased to see a good selection of Rough Guides and Tokyopop manga translations. The Diana Wynne Jones selection was, however, rather slim. I went home with the Rough Guide to Scotland (Glasgow ahoy!), the newest Jasper Fforde novel, and a trial copy of Time Out.
