WEEKEND WEB: Book of the Week
Bookmark is selling ‘Wrinklies’ Wit & Wisdom’ (RRP £9.99) for £7.99 and an extra 20% off with the voucher.
Old is the new young! Grey is the new black! Rocking chairs are the new rock ‘n’ roll! Saga-louts are the new lager-louts!
This sparkling collection of wrinklie wit and wisdom is proof-positive that the stereotypes of knitting grannies and doddering grandads just aren’t true anymore – if, indeed, they ever were.
