This week we're celebrating Independent Bookshop Week in the UK. Tell us - what was the last book you bought from an independent bookshop?

The Lincoln Futura was a concept car promoted by Ford's Lincoln brand, designed by Ford's lead stylists Bill Schmidt and John Najjar, and hand-built by Ghia in Turin, Italy — at a cost of $250,000 (equivalent to $2,200,000 in 2017). Displayed on the auto show circuit in 1955, the Futura was modified by George Barris into the Batmobile, for the 1966 TV series Batman.
The Futura's styling was original by 1950s standards — with a double, clear-plastic canopy top, exaggerated hooded headlight pods, and very large, outward-canted tailfins. Nevertheless, the Futura had a complete powertrain and was fully operable, in contrast to many show cars.
The Futura was a success as a show car, garnering favorable publicity for Ford. It was released as a model kit and a toy, and played a prominent part in the 1959 movie "It Started with a Kiss", starring Debbie Reynolds and Glenn Ford.
The concept car was subsequently sold to auto customizer George Barris. Having originally cost $250,000, the Futura was sold to Barris for $1.00 by Ford Motor Company. As the car was never titled and was therefore uninsurable, it was parked behind Barris' shop, sitting idle and deteriorating for several years.
In 1966 Barris was asked to design a theme car for the Batman television series. Barris thought the Futura might work well, and decided that its unusual winged shape would be an ideal starting point for the Batmobile.
And the rest is history. We'll talk more about the Batmobile in the future! .
That's all for today, Gotham citizens. So tune in tomorrow! Same Bat-Time! Same Bat-Channel!

What should I read next?

Years and years ago I got to cross this off my bucket list 🐧 It was the first time I fed penguins, but not the last! You'd think pugs are my fav animal but I'm obsessed with penguins and have been literally my whole life! What's your favourite animal? #ilovepenguins #penguin #littlepenguin #fairypenguin #bucketlist #todolist #kickinggoals #sohappy #blondehair #blueeyes #suicidegirls #sg @suicidegirls @sg.australia


MIMIRANDA. Happy happy birthday to you! 🎉 My goodness, where do I even begin? I have no idea. Maybe I'll start with something about being so thankful with how close we've gotten over the last few months. Yeah, that. I'm thankful for that. I'm thankful for a lot of things about you. You're so supportive and encouraging. Though you have a lame sense of humor sometimes, it is most definitely also appreciated. You challenge me to be better. You show great compassion during days where I'm not feeling like myself. Whenever I get stuck in a dark place, you push me to just say a simple prayer to God, and rely and trust in Him. That helps more than you know. You always listen even if I sound like a broken record talking about the same things. The bottom line is, there is so much you've done for me, and I appreciate you very much. You're silly, you're a great musician, an awesome badminton player, and you're an astounding 5'9" (YOU'RE TALL). I'm always gonna be here for you to help hold it together anytime things seem to be falling apart, or anytime you need a listening ear, or a few words of wisdom, or if you're just bored and you want someone to bug. Really anything. It's the least I can do after all you've done for me. Thank you again for all the encouragement and prayers. Continue to seek first the kingdom of God, and you will grow in your relationship indefinitely. May you receive God's peace, joy, strength, and wisdom for another year to come. Happy happy birthday, Sheriff. 💕 #mimiranda #sheriff #werethesameagefornow #whatdidyouwantasapresent #glorytogod #penguin #drawsomething #faninthewater

It's been very rainy these last few days in England, guess it was rather lucky I bought this umbrella just before it started pouring down ☺
I'm halfway through Wuthering Heights and I am really liking it (Jane Eyre is still my favourite), after this I'll start reading The Tenant of Wildfell Hall 😄💙
