Follow Friday #2!
Follow Friday is a blog hop hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. It helps book bloggers (yay book bloggers!) get to know each other and increase their followings.
Today, we were supposed to post a picture of ourselves with what we're currently reading, or just a fun picture. I'm a little bit shy and I tend to fight with my WebCam, so I went with the fun picture. I took these over the summer when Tyler-Rose and I went to England.
It's The Eagle and Child, the famous pub where the Inklings (writing group of C. S. Lewis, Tolkien, et al) met! When we were about to leave Oxford--I mean literally getting on the bus to go--I realized I didn't take a picture of this place and had to run back to get one. It was worth it. :)
While the Inklings are The Eagle and Child's claim to fame, what most people don't know is that after a while, the Dons decided the beer was better across the street (or had a disagreement with the owner of The Eagle and Child, depending on who you talk to), and they defected to this place:
The Lamb & Flag, which is where I ate. I can't vouch for the beer, but I had a very tasty ham sandwich there.
Happy Follow Friday everyone!
