‘The etiquette of bedtime reading is such a delicate matter that we must approach it on tiptoe . . .’
Greetings from No. 53 where we’re battening down hatches and stacking up reading piles as we approach winter, on tiptoe or otherwise, and watch the nights draw in ever closer. The clocks go back this Sunday, giving us an extra hour in bed with a good book.
Therefore, we’re turning back the clocks to Slightly Foxed Issue 37 and appreciating some amusing and enlightening pillow talk from Oliver Pritchett, all about the delicate etiquette of reading in bed.
Having negotiated these helpful rules and regulations, we feel our handsome pocket hardbacks, compact creamy paperbacks and issues of the quarterly are the perfect size for reading in bed, and all within their pages can be enjoyed under the covers – or wherever you wish to settle down and escape into another world. You’ll find a selection of cheering reading recommendations for darkening evenings beneath the article in the newsletter.
Meantime, we hope you enjoy this dip into the archives (and the bedroom) with Oliver.
