Winter Wallowing

Some reading for this winter.


I could not resist this offer on a package of 8 books from the Gollancz 50. Some of them,  I have read; some of them, I have on my bookshelf under different covers. The package price was still cheap,  if only to pay for the ones that I am not familiar with.

I have such fond memories of the years between 12 and 14, being let loose by special dispensation in the Adult section of the library and discovering Gollancz’s famous yellow covers. I pulled every yellow cover that I could find from the shelf and have yet to lose my love of SciFi. I’m less fond of Fantasy as a genre and wonder what on earth Pratchett is doing in this set, but it was only £7.99 for all 8, with free delivery.

This offer is now priced at just  a fiver for 8 books, but free delivery only kicks in on a spend over £25

If only we were not de-stuffing, I’d love to have the full 50 on my shelves.

I have elected to tackle the prompts not in date order necessarily but to seize upon prompts that offer me space in which to write down the things that I am feeling the need to say. Even if I need to crowbar it in. The thing is, I am going to continue to be short of time and space in which to write and so a two-for-one is useful and I hope to do as many of those as I can. Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
