Re: Absolutely: A Memoir

Philippa and I stumbled across this book yesterday at Waterstone's and I have to say it looks absolutely amazing. It's consists of photos mainly (a bit like Helen Mirren's autobiography) but the parts about her home life and family were all new to me. Can't wait to buy it now!

Haha yes we were pretty much just unashamedly fangirling over it right in the middle of Waterstone's. It really is a stunning book though, so we had every right to do so :lol: :whistle:

I agree with the matter. Even the front cover's all new - what more could you possibly want? :whistle:

Unfortunately not.. Waterstone's has one store in Holland which is located in Amsterdam. I pass it on my way to uni but the prices are insane so I hardly ever buy something. :lol:

Re: Absolutely: A Memoir

My copy arrived today! It got damaged in the mail though so I'm considering sending it back. :roll:

Either way, I also found the HQ photograph that was used for the cover photo!

I bought my copy three days ago at Heathrow airport when I was on my way home from New York! I was so excited and happy that they had it at WHSmith. I cannot wait to read it and look at it! :hyper:

Guess what? I received a new copy from Amazon yesterday, and since the P&P charges would be more than the price of a new copy, Amazon told me that I can keep both books.

Going to put up one on Ebay though, maybe someone here's interested?

Re: Absolutely: A Memoir

I received my copy just before I went to Canada so I still haven't had time to take a proper look at it. Perhaps tonight I'll make some time to sit down and read a few bits. The parts that I've looked at so far are absolutely stunning though!

And, did you read it by now? It's wonderful, isn't it?
