Cor, I am having to stop myself going completely insane and buying EVERYTHING until I’m sure I’m going to use it all the time. There are real bath/ take off and landing/ battery- based drawbacks, and I’ve been trying it out with easier things. But the sheer impossibility of being in a french airport, reading about the guys who started facebook, and downloading Ben Mezrich’s book on the subject ten seconds later, was just incredible, like magic. The weird thing is though there aren’t any page numbers, so you never know how far along in the book you are- when it came to the end, it was a complete shock. Made it a bit odd. Will be interesting to see how it works for more serious things. Mezrich’s book is good though- interesting about how huge success changes people; about how things change depending on the POV and the generalised selfishnesses of the young elite. The fact that it all took place about ten minutes ago is frightening too. Anyway, definitely made me glad I have (mostly) hopped to Twitter!
Anyway. Here’s a quick review of The Wilt Inheritance from the Guardian, and I am about to dive into the new Jilly Cooper, the new Lee Child and the new CJ Sansom (ooh big books- Christmas must be on its way) which are not in the least bit interesting to blog about- but tons of fun to read,
