I noticing that I’m not being as tempted by actual physical books out in the world now.
I did notice that in Urban Coffee Co on Monday that their bookcrossing “pile” (it’s too messy to be a shelf and the books are scattered on the floor) did tempt me slightly. Noticed that the name Josephine Tey leapt at me. I sort-of skim read a book by her at secondary school when I was preparing to play Richard III in Sixth Form. (Spent far too much time pretending to be Anthony Sher and wrote down all my dreams and random documentaries I’d watched on telly.) I resisted picking up a book.
I’m also being far too easily led by the Greenbelt Blog. Just on the basis of the blog post I want to buy lots of Stanley Hauerwas books and have a read.
Temptation is a terrible thing.
