In the words of Jim Carey, “Somebody Stop Me”.
I bought more books. I cannot help it, it is like an addiction. Anyway, this is what I bought today.
- English: A Story of Marmite, Queueing and Weather – Ben Fogle
- Up: My Life Journey to the Top of Everest – Ben Fogle
- Blood for Blood – Victoria Selman
- The Killer Collective – Barry Eisler
At this rate, I need to learn to read a book a day. I bought M some great books for Christmas too, 2 of which I would like to read, and my parents bought him the latest Churchill book “Churchill: Walking With Destiny”, which is another one that I want to read too. Maybe I should start practising my speed reading. Yes, I can speed read, but I prefer to go at a natural pace and take the book in, visualise what’s going on, and transfer the words to the movie projector in my mind. A prime example would be Bird Box by Josh Malerman, which I read in October, then watched the film in December and discovered the moved that played in my head from the book was far better than the actual movie itself.
Anyway, someone, please stop me from buying more books than I can possibly read in my lifetime, or send me a vampire to make me immortal.
