Thank you, Thandie Newton!

News just in from my friends at the Bronte Blog -- for which many thanks:

The Black Star News asks actress Thandie Newton about the last book she read and her reply was, to say the least, unexpected (for us, anyway):
Bookworm Troy Johnson was wondering what’s the last book you read?
TN: Oh my Lord! What was the last book I read? Oh, it was a book by my friend, Justine Picardie, called Daphne. It’s about Daphne du Maurier and the Bronte family. (Kam Williams

I must say, Justine, you do have interesting friends and acquaintances!

She is very nice, and very clever -- she studied anthropology at Cambridge University (I did English there). And obviously, she has excellent taste in books!
