I’m already a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to Kindle books so Β£0.99 for Neil Gaiman’s American Gods quartet was an easy purchase.

When it comes to great big works of fiction it’s Kindle all the way for me.

πŸ“š The Lark Ascending - The Music Of The British Landscape by Richard King. Enjoying this. There’s some good stuff about the “blood and soil” type fascists that tried to organise in Britain between the Wars. I’m always suspicious of those that talk about an idyllic pastoral past.

Book. The Lark Ascending - The Music Of The British Landscape by Richard King.

Someone mentioned the nancy comic strip a while back and I became a big fan. It’s nice to have this new collection of them.

book - nancy by Olivia Jaimes

Species of Space and Other Pieces by Georges Perec is one of my favourite books. The main essay is about the different kinds of space humans use and he goes out from the empty page to the solar system. It’s all very playful and the other pieces are just as fun and interesting.

πŸ“š Finished a couple of Le Guin novels. Now on to the Philip Glass autobiography/memoir.

I’ve started to read The Left Hand Of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin. It’s a shame that her passing has finally spurred me into doing so. πŸ“š

I’ve been reading Detroit 67: The Year That Changed Soul It’s an excellent bit of popular music and social history centred on the tensions within the Motown record label in that year. πŸ“š
