No, I haven't been off losing myself in March Madness like in years past, I've been reading. Luckily I came across a few great books in a row.
During the past week or so, I read The Mercury Visions of Louis Daguerre, The Haunted Bookshop (albeit a better copy than the one pictured on Powell's. Mine is a little hardcover with dust jacket from the 1950s.) and in less than 24 hours, I finished Written on the Body.
I'm going for a few drinks afterwork, but I'm looking forward to writing up some thoughts on these books. All perfect in their own way. I know I've written it before, but I'll write it and say it again, go out today and pick up a Jeanette Winterson book. You won't be disappointed.
Hopefully waiting for me when I get home tonight:
Club Dumas, Angle of Repose and The Way of all Flesh.
I never thought I'd say such a thing, but Thank You Amazon.com. It sounds like such blasphemy even as I write it.
