My my my, it's been quite a while since I dusted the shelves in here, hasn't it?...
I'll not do the 'not-blogged-blah' so.. lets skip ahead a little.
One of the books that I'm reading at the moment - one of quite a few if you glance to the right - Is a book by Sue Townsend (of Adrian Mole fame). It's called The Public Confessions of a Middle Aged Woman.
The blurb on the back says:
Over the last decade, Sue Townsend has written a monthly column for Sainsbury's Magazine. Covering everything from hosepipe bans and Spanish restaurants to writer's block and the posh middle-aged woman she once met who'd never heard of Winnie the Pooh.
Now collected together for the first time, these funny, perceptive and touching pieces make up the brilliant new book from one of Britains most popular and acclaimed writers.
So far, I am enjoying the book. It's a blog readers type of book really, without the necessity for an internet connection; portable, lightweight and totally wireless.
It is funny, and you can read a whole chapter in the time it takes to boil a kettle - the chapters of course being one month's article.
I think I'll give it a six out of ten so far, being as I havent finished it yet, and if it were a blog, I'd already have linked to it.
Nb. I've decided to add a little point scorer for when I review the books - much like my MIR. I chose little islands to indicate whether or not I would like to take the book to a desert island with me...I'd need a helluva sized luggage trunk....
6 out of 10 - so far.
