What I'm reading...
Just to prove that I'm not spending all of my time swanning around playing ladies, I am reading a few books too. I always have several on the go at any one time. This doesn't display a lack of focus on my part, more a complete panic at how many books I want to read, and how little time there is to do it!
So, here they are in no particular order:
The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler.
Death and the Running Patterer by Robin Adair
By the Sword: A history of Gladiators, Musketeers, Samuri, Swashbucklers and Olympic Champions by Richard Cohen
The World Through Maps: A History of Cartography by John Rennie Short
Fashion: A History from the 18th to the 20th century by Tashen
Kid's Bed Time reading:
Tunnels by Roderick Gordon and Brian Williams
For the fun of it I thought I'd jot down on a piece of paper a Christmas wish list of books I'd be rather delighted to acquire. I had to stop in the end. The list was getting a little, er, ambitious. Hmmmm.
