On books

Ooof - and that's now up to date with the reviews, so you lot will stop getting huge lists of them appearing in your friends' pages for a while.

It's an interesting exercise - writing the capsule reviews, working out why I like them (or not) is making me think a bit more about them than I normally do. Usually I just read for the pleasure, and not to try to work out what I'm getting out of them.

On the other hand, I definitely need to get to a bookshop again, soon. I've got one unread book left before I start going back through the library looking for stuff I've either not read yet (not many of those left, after living with the bellinghwoman for so long) or that I've not read for sufficiently long that they've become fresh again.

Before Giftmas, I was on a great C J Cherryh binge, but we're definitely going to have to index all the books, because I'm damned if I can find some of them.
