Quick reminder: Amazon requires publishers offer a 60% discount on all books. If you buy the book for the same price direct from the publisher or from an indie bookstore - you’re giving over twice the amount to that independent business than if you bought the book on amazon!

Theresa May is right that would require extension of Article 50 - but with just 67 days until , so would every other option. She wasted years on a deal no one wants. This decision is too important to rush through in 2 months - she must ask EU for more time.

This weekend Libyan freelance photographer & videojournalist Mohamed Ben Khalifa was killed while doing his job. An extremely talented and committed individual, his death is a severe loss to the global journalism community. Our thoughts are with his family

I rarely come across footnotes, but have had a few glossaries in books I've recently read – I think I like them most because it's quite a fun & simple way to learn new words (esp. when there's no equivalent at all in the English language)

The only time I've found untranslated elements v tricky was in a book published in the 80s which kept full lines in isiZulu, Sesotho & Afrikaans and only sporadically translated these, which was slightly bewildering!

I love it when novels in translation keep the less translatable terms in the text & explain them in a glossary
