ImageBill Bryson, speaking at the Booksellers Association conference, suggested that publishers should give a free download e-book code when someone buys the printed version. This way it protects and boost sales of the printed version of the books. I would go with that.

The America’s Cup has come down to the last race. Against all normal thinking, unless you are James Spithill or a member of the Oracle team, Oracle has come back from almost certain defeat, pulling back from being down 1-8 to NZL. It’s now rather like the last 2 minutes of a playoff basketball game.

And I had another first today. The skill section of the WOD today was 100 DUBs (double unders with a jump rope). The most I have really done is 23 consecutive one and then I would stop, quitting while I was ahead. However, even when my cheesewire of a jump rope clipped my ankles, I had to carry on until I made it to 100. Actually, they were slightly modified as I did a dub then single jump. Was quite tired at the end of it but quite elated too. Set myself a bench mark.         Joanna
