it would seem that variety is the spice of life as this post has nothing to do with books. well it sort of does. peripherally. about 5 years ago i attended a university in england called keele. it was a great year, and this is where my english classes took place. (i told you there would be a peripheral connection to books.) anyway, i have uploaded this photo from my flickr account. if you want to see more photos of my time across the pond in old blighty click the link under the picture.
