It’s been a while and although this is sadly not the review I mentioned in the last post, it is nonetheless a post. Recently I have been distracted by even more good literature (fiction and non fiction) and I’m really excited to be in the process reviewing. I will do that as soon as I can but first, here is a bunch of new books that cost less than a tenner.
There is a sensible reason for these purchases, wanting to downsize my books somewhat this year, It makes sense to buy more books so I can feel inspired to start clearing the ones I don’t want anymore as I read/review them.This is logical as otherwise I would be drowned by paper through my own laziness and/or hoarding tendencies.
these purchases also represent a pile of firsts, which just occurred to me as I was casting around for more to say about them…
The Early Church is the first book in Penguin’s six part guide, which I probably won’t read until I have collect the remaining four parts I am missing, luckily Diarmaid MacCulloch’s A History of Christianity waiting in the wings. The Tacitus book is the same version as the one my fellow passenger had, on my first flight to America, A Canticle for Leibowitz was one of the first books on my wish list and just happened to be placed randomly on the shelves and caught my eye.
Possession‘s author’s first name starts with the first letter of the alphabet. Point stretched beyond reasonable amusement, I shall leave you now so I can read some more and write, then head back out into Bloggaria tomorrow, where I see you have all been busy making it a challenge to catch up once again, in the best possible way!
