If you love reading and happen to be in Newcastle, make today the day you join a real book group! The Living Room Book Group meets twice today at 12.30pm and 6.30pm (and usually the first Tuesday of every month) at The Living Room at with reader in residence Caroline Beck. It's incredibly easy to join- read the book, turn up and get talking! All groups are informal and fun, the perfect combination of drinks, laughs, a bit of book discussion and the odd visit from an author. Tonight the book will be discussing the June book of the month Blackwater by Kirsten Ekman. Come along and try it yourself....

Do you think someone who takes photographs in a graveyard - and I mean lots of photographs - is a bit strange? Because that's what I do. I take photographs in other places too of course, so strictly speaking, I'm only strange on a part-time basis. I also have to say, in my defence, that the graveyard in question is the most photogenic graveyard in the North East and that it has fans (can graveyards really have fans?) pretty much all over the world.

The graveyard I'm referring to is Jesmond Old Cemetery in Newcastle and for those who aren't sure which of Jesmond's cemeteries it is, it's the one that is sandwiched between Jesmond Road and Sandyford Road. If you've never been, give yourself a treat and have a'll fall in love with the place instantly, I promise.
