Reading the 80s - 1983
Second person singular ( If
on a Winter’s Night a Traveller – Italo Calvino). First published in English in 1983 (Italian 1980), this book
is so experimental it should, by rights, be annoying. That it isn’t is a tribute to both Italo Calvino
and William Wea...

Obligatory shots of the Alhambra
I have also tried to draw it, but luckily I haven't got a scanner with me, so I don't have to post it until I've had another go. Or six.

Reading the 80s - 1982
I only managed two books for this challenge this month - but the first wasn't something I'd usually read, so I'm quite pleased about that. Stephen King - The Dark Tower I (The Gunslinger). To be honest I was surprised how much I enjoyed this. It starts, or ...

On Bookswaps and Letting Go (and somehow, inevitably, libraries and London boroughs again)
Technically I still belong to Bookmooch, and for a while I

Library Books..
As you can see my reading at present is quite crime heavy. This isn't even all of it, there was the aforementioned Patrick Butler for the Defence by John Dickson Carr, which was a green penguin, The Black Stage by Anthony Gilbert, also a green penguin, and ...

Book Review - Patrick Butler for the Defence. John Dickson Carr.
This was a very strange book. Surely old fashioned even when it came out in 1956, it's so bad it's almost good. So offensive it's actually impossible
