Pour out a dram of Isle of Jura, make the perfect 11-point cuppa. There is always room at our corner table in the Moon Under Water for talk of books. Expect reviews of our favourites, author interviews, themed reading lists, visits to our favourite bookshops and anything else that inspires us. Although the e-books appear here to stay, we love paperbacks, hardbacks, dog-eared charity shop finds and beautifully-bound first editions.
The site formerly known as ten minutes hate took inspiration from (and certain liberties with) George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. It has been broadcasting from Japan since 2010, with extensive coverage of the effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake. In March 2012, J.C. Greenway published a book comprising posts taken from this site called The Teas That Bind.
