Hey, So, I just bought a membership to the Lit & Phil in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne (my hometown) and it seems perfect for my needs. They have over 160000 books from 1850 onwards, quiet areas where you can sit and work (on my novel, in my case) and they even have free WiFi. All in all, I think it's a perfect little place to get your head in the game. I've decided that there are far too many distractions in my own home, and so I'm going to aim to go here around once a week and just sit and write. I think the atmosphere of the building will be especially motivating (I have heard countless stories and spotted many videos which claim that it's haunted, but y'know, fuck it). I was wondering if anyone has ever been here, and if you have, did you enjoy it? A note on the membership- it is a little steep (£115 for a standard membership) but I'm under 18 so I picked one up for only £12. For that price, I thought that there's no point in missing out, and they have a load of Bukowski's work in which I'm going to go and pick up tomorrow. You can check it out at http://www.litandphil.org.uk/ and if you live too far away then at least you can drool over the pretty books. I'm really excited to go and check it out, should be an interesting (and hopefully productive day), as long as I don't get murdered by a ghost.
