Welcome to Calliope's Coffee House the proprietor of this establishment is Jacquie Reaville better known as The Book Imp.

When I started this place it was primarily for book reviews and thoughts on all things literary. Well the book reviews are still here, but somehow it's grown into a place for me and others to practice short fictional writing and of course a place where I can give my thoughts and opinions on virtually any subject that might take my fancy.

Hope you enjoy your visit.

Just to add that I welcome comments, the more the merrier. They don't even have to be related to books or writing just go wild (not too wild though).

Permissions are set so that even anonymous users can answer - but comment moderation is in effect which means I get to say yes or no to letting them appear here.

Where's Milo?

I thought everyone might appreciate this. As I've mentioned before my dog will sometimes lick book covers, mainly second hand books, he's not that interested in new ones. I guess the used ones have more flavour! Well tonight he's gone one better I think.

I lost him tonight. My sister and I were looking everywhere and eventually I came to the conclusion that he had somehow got into the garden and then escaped from there. I was heading to my room to get my phone prior to going out to look for him.

I opened the bedroom door.

I didn't know whether to laugh or cry because there he was. I had to grab my phone quickly and take a snap....

He obviously fell asleep while he was reading!

I hasten to add that he is not allowed on my bed, not that he cares, especially if I'm not around, and obviously I wasn't around. Guess I'll be washing bed clothes tomorrow.


  1. I do appreciate your lovely post. Thanks.


  2. Thanks Philip

    As I said before I'm still laughing over the Australian Tourism Site's comments you sent me. So is my sister for that matter.

  3. Laughing is a drastic medicine for our health. Keep on smiling.
