Today I went to Peter's Booksellers to spend my £100 book vouchers. Somewhat unexpectedly, when I arrived they asked me if I would mind performing some of my poems for them. Like a proper boyscout (always be prepared!), I had a few ready to perform, and my notebook with me. I did Words, a poem from my YPL audition, and Rumours (at the request of my Mom, it's one of her favourites!).
Then it was on to spending my vouchers. Not as easy as it sounds! Peter's was like a bookworm's paradise; I was more than spoilt for choice. Amongst other books, I eventually decided to get a rhyming dictionary and a book of poems, which will hopefully be useful for inspiration over the coming twelve months.
