    So last week I told you about my trip down to London and the Random House book event…. this week I want to share with you the Faber & Faber book event, complete with cake!  I went from the Random House event to Foyles for book shopping and the pub next door for food with wonderful bloggers Viv from Serendipity Reviews, Sarah from Feeling Fictional, Kirsty from The Overflowing Library, Jesse from Books4Teen and Michelle at Much Loved Books.
