29-Jun-2007 Not Much Running – Reading

Friday 29 June 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

ok, no running. still feel a bit dodgy after the bronchitis but will start again this weekend as am going away. I see to have been going to work earlier (or dropping kids off to flute or recorder early) and the missus is working more which is stretching us all…

Anyway maybe its the cold dark weather but i felt like cheering myself up so bought some books : (listed in no order)

Book of Dave by Will Self (review) – I bought this as I heard an interview with the author on a guardian podcast and it sounds “interesting”.

Londonistan by  Gautam Malkani (review) – I bought this as its set around my old stomping ground of Hounslow.

Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami (wikipedia) yeah I have fancied reading some Murakami and this is the only one that looked interesting maybe as the blurb mentioned bob dylan… But I didn’t like it and didn’t finish it.

A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian, by Marina Lewycka (review) ok I bought it for the title !

Are you experienced ? by William Sutcliffe (review) very trashy – finished it in 24hrs just about. Bought it as the random page I saw in the bookshop mentioned Golmud and this is so obscure a place to mention that it would have to be worth reading (I spent 3 days in Golmud waiting for a bus).

Most of my books are bought and can be lent to budding readers, maybe for the price of a coffee and / or a lend of other books. you know where I am.
