Last Christmas…

You gave me your books and the very next day they stole them away…Ah, Yuletide, or whatever you want to call it. A time of precious memories. Like having my laptop bag (sans laptop) stolen last year with a selection of rather good, rather new, rather expensive to replace library books.Well, this year that won’t happen. My actual reading material spans from the mundane (Simon Blackburn on Reliabilism) to the locally exotic (a book on strange and ‘inexplicable’ things in New Zealand) with some good fiction inbetween (‘Cloud Atlas’ by David Mitchell and ‘The Space Machine’ by Christopher Priest to name but two). I have fourteen books in my bag and I plan to read at least half of them in the next week, if not more.Which is my way of saying that I’m off for a little while. Possibly until the 27th but you might want to set your alarms to mid-January as I have parts of the country to see and little hope of internet access whilst I’m there.Be seeing you.
