Haven't asked you for a while what you're reading, and I'd love to know!
My reading has been totally disrupted this week as the house is upside down with builders and decorators doing their thing. Mind you, a bit of colour splashed on the walls does make one extremely happy ...
Am still on Nicola Barker's Darkmans, but it's such a brick of a book that I can't carry it around in my bag and at home, can only read it at the dining table! I am very much enjoying it though and don't mind the length. I'm resigned to it taking me a while, and slipping a different book into my bag for when I go out.
I've also finally read Everything Bad is Good for You Which I found a cheap copy of, thanks to the generosity of Big Bookshop. TV programmes are getting more complex, computer games make you brighter, blogging increases your IQ. There's a lot of good news here for the geek and couch potato!
I inserted a jokey extract from the book some time back about the dangers of reading, but it turns out that Johnson is a staunch defender of the value of print books, even while he explains that in our participation of life online, we are reading perhaps more than ever before ...
I have been moving books around and decided to make a list of all the unread books I have which I really want to read. I gave up when I counted 50 titles. Really I must not buy any more. (But I have already broken that resolution several times this week ...)
So what's happening with you, reading-wise?
