I’m a scrooge. This isn’t really news. Bah, humbug.
I don’t get into the Christmas spirit, unless by “Christmas spirit” you mean forgetting what day it is and working throughout.
But when I read about a “Satanic Anti-Christmas Flea Market” happening in East London at the weekend, I decided I had to go along. After all, Anti-Christmas? That’s the kind of spirit I can get into.
This week I’ve decided to experiment with doing the weekly round-up on a Friday. Doing it on Sundays never quite happens, because… well… Sunday. And Mondays feel wrong, somehow. So let’s see how this goes.
Considering that the last one was posted this Monday, this is more of a three-day roundup, but I’ve managed to fit quite a lot into those three days.
Well, no one can say I don’t have wide-ranging interests.
Books I’ve read this week cover subjects as diverse as forensically analysing Android smartphones and spiritual beliefs in ancient Egypt.
