431149_4370743597163_1721292240_nWhat could be better than a lazy Sunday with your feet up in an ebook festival?  Time to catch up on all the events you missed during the week.  Time to find new ‘live’ events to enjoy.  However you ‘read’ us,  we hope you’re enjoying coming ‘Beyond the Margins’ with this year’s festival.  Don’t forget that if you have pictures of your ereader in ‘interesting’ poses you can submit them to the Facebook Page for the ‘where in the world is my ereader’ album.  So far Crime Writer in Residence Chris Longmuir’s kindle seems to be getting about most!

11am with a McStory. Today it’s The Voracious Reader by Pat Black

At 12 noon we get the weather from Derek. Or Shuggie. Or Derek. You never can tell with sheep.  They’re like the weather in that respect.

There is also another scene of We Wove A Web in Childhood to watch. And you can download the entire performance as an enhanced ebook from THE GOODY BAG if you don’t have the patience to watch scene by scene.

At 4pm Kathleen Jones’ fourth workshop is here. Today she looks at Talking to the reader. Giving the ‘I’ a voice.  Even if you aren’t handing in ‘homework’ you can still enjoy these workshops and do the exercises yourself.
