... with books for others to pick up and enjoy. Janice also talked a bit about the colleges we were passing and the kids wore out the camera with lots of photos of the amazing architecture. (I just downloaded 920 to the laptop for one day ! Don't worry, I won't share them all.)
The convention was then officially ended with a flash mob. Nearly 200 of us standing around a central square in Oxford and at a given time we all fell silent, pulled out a book and pretended to ...
