Books Random Thoughts Reading

2015 Reading List

At the end of 2014 my friend Aaron published a list of the books he had read in 2014 on his Facebook page.  It occurred to me that I had not actually kept a list of the books that I had read and I have sought to remedy this by setting up a new page on the Unknownblog.  It is imaginatively called “Reading List 2015” (Hey I am still in holiday mode) and I will update it as I go, with a brief review and my rating.  The link to the page is:

Happy reading!


A wonderful problem

Something strange is happening in my house.  It has been happening for quite some time, but now it is becoming a little frightening.  Yes it’s books.  Piles of them. Teetering anxiously, ever threatening to topple down on innocent guests. Appearing in corners. Sneaking into too-small gaps in and on already over stuffed bookshelves. They are poking out of corners in every room of the house.  I love books – as does my partner, but it has meant that we have tonnes of them.  So much so that Henry was wondering if we needed to get the foundations of the house examined to ensure that they could support the extra weight.


Yes even with the advent of e-books (and let’s not even get e-book storage) the acquisition of actual books has not diminished…still there is always room for just one more…just one…or two…and maybe that one…it is only a small one after all….
