BookFabulous goes on the move today and will for the next month post pieces from London and New York, from Syracuse and Niagara Falls and then from Boston and Jordan before making its way back to Abu Dhabi for business as usual.
As this site is ultimately about words, BookFabulous thought it would be a good idea to go out and look for the stories instead of just waiting for them to fall from the sky. And so here we are. There will be pieces on the films watched during the dragging hours on flights between cities, relays of words – that make no sense at times - that tumble from the mouths of strangers; the shouted words of the rowdy child sat next to me or the incoherent two obnoxious adults blocking the aisle and getting hammered in front of me. It will report on books, exhibitions and happenings along the way too. If it prods a thought, a story or even makes BookFabulous linger for more than a second, it will most likely find its way here in some way.
As editor, I would very much like to say that this has not had much thought go into it so bear with me and it is my ultimate wish that you stick around and return to check the site. There is no reward for your much appreciated return except that you get to tell me what an insane rubbish idea this was and to bask in the glory of an ‘I told you so’ moment if it all goes terribly wrong :)
However, it might work and the spectacular may take place. Crazier things have happened before. Besides with Mr. Fabulous and Junior for the ride, what could possibly go wrong? Right? ;)
Oh, and one last thing… follow the twitter feed @RanaAsfour for updates.
So, buckle up, and off we go. First stop: London!
