How the hell are you? THREE WEEKS! I don't even have any proper excuses. I haven't been busier than usual, I've just been sort of...absent. Mentally & blogally. Been going through that "What the fuck am I doing with my life?" circle but sort of deeper than usual & the fact that time keeps continuing isn't a great help. I need that stop watch thing from that kids tv programme really. Or to quit my job without that having any consequences. Neither of which are possible. But I have finally made myself take some photos & think about posts. Because I still enjoy doing this! Getting comments & e-mails from lovely people who like the blog helps a lot & I promise if it ever got to the point where it was forced I would stop. Pinky swear.
Phew. Well minus learning how to make video gifs I have been solidly reading just non-fiction for about 2 months now. With a slight deviation in the form of The Unbearable Lightness of Being when I was in Greece. & it's making me feel like proper clever. My primary school teacher would have been so proud, they always complained at parents evening how I only read fiction. Although I'm sure drugs, feminism & fucked up famous people probably wasn't what she had in mind.
But honestly guys this contains like 4 of the best books (I only just started Just Kids when Girls to the Front arrived & I got distracted, & the Isabella Blow biog wasn't my favourite) I've ever read in my entire life. Bitch is probably the hardest to read just because it's so dense but the others are extremely accessible & not dry at all. So I was thinking, does anyone want to do book swaps? Either we exchange lists of books we've read or would like to read & then pick one & post to each other, returning when we're done. Or we just pick the best book we've read recently & post that instead (checking that the other person hasn't already read it). The second one appeals to me more because it would push people out of their comfort zones more. I think postage would be about 2-3 2nd class stamps each way.
