End of Term

Term ended yesterday, and we're now on our holidays until Tuesday 21st April. There may be the occasional post before then, but now it's off to the (metaphorical) beach with lots of books.

We've previously reported on one of the key literary awards of the year, the Bookseller-Diagram Prize for the year's oddest book title, and are now delighted to announce that the 2009 winner is a new classic, The 2009-2014 World Outlook for 60-milligram Containers of Fromage Frais. It beat off tough competition from the other shortlisted titles - Baboon Metaphysics, Strip and Knit with Style, The Large Sieve and its Applications, Techniques for Corrosion Monitoring and our own favourite,
Curbside Consultation of the Colon.
