Had very nice lunch out with Sam and while we were wandering, managed to bungle a few op-shops. I naturally found myself some books. The Christmas Books-Volume Two by Charles Dickens (includes: The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life and The Haunted Man) and a very nice new-looking copy of The Map That Changed the World by Simon Winchester.
As I we progress into the ever nearing holiday season I intend to get the reading count up. I am currently well engrossed in Margret Atwood’s The Blind Assassin, and I’m afraid will probably jump at anything Atwood that comes my way, it’s beautiful, beautiful stuff. Amongst the fiction, I have to spare some space for the ever backlogged Coffee House Theology and the numerous others that I must read.
For the last few years I have been tracking what I read on All Consuming. I’m not sure why I keep using it, because it is aesthetically appalling, but does seem to do the trick. Is there anything else out there – nicer but just as functional?
