After a week or two in the wilderness – by which I mean not on the internet much – I am returned (and will do a drive by commenting on all your blogs tomorrow) and it seems like a good time to recap on the books I have been picking up cheaply in the last few months from second hand places.
I Stared at the Night of the City will be the first book I have read which has been translated from Kurdish so looking forward to that and it is good to see that my quest to collect émile Zola’s Rougon-Macquart sequence in completely non matching editions is still going strong.
There is something of a travel theme here, which I will no doubt mention again soon as I am off somewhere for a few weeks but I will ‘create’ a bit of drama by leaving the destination for a later post. It’s been a while since I looked foolish with my poor linguistic skills, embarrassment needs an airing every so often.
That’s your lot for today, whilst I attempt to catch up but a more inspired post will come you way next time, promise!
