Sorry, if I have the capability to make this a "sticky", I don't know how to do it.

Bought this on Sunday with some book tokens from last Christmas that I found buried in a drawer whilst digging around trying to find a box of drawing pins:


And then yesterday (using my annual DACS Payback money, which is like a visit from Santa for any visual artist) I ordered one of these:

I love John Williams, Paul, and Augustus is fascinating. Have you read Buthcer's Crossing? It takes place in Colorado . . .

Paul: I certainly hope you report on The Big Sky when you get to it. I love the cover with all it implies for my interest in Western fiction -- and having Stegner introduce it adds four or five points to viability. I have only heard of it marginally and never investigated it so your thoughts would be most welcome.

As I read absolutely bugger all last year I'm determined to try something decent this year. I had started, and got half way through, Brideshead Revisited which I was really enjoying, but have left it in the States when I woke in a panic to realise that I had precisely one and a half hours to get to the airport and check in. D'oh!

So, to ease myself in gently I bought Double Whammy by Carl Hiaasen and one of my brothers gave me as a Chrissy present Letts Rip! Inside the Parliament of Fools.

Got a copy of Rafael Sabatini's "Scaramouche", but haven't had time to sit down with it properly. Love a bit of Swashing and Buckling and hope it's as good as Captain Blood.
