Literary Overload

Beautiful norway.. and not a cultural activity in sight!

Beautiful norway.. and not a cultural activity in sight!

Hope everyone is looking forward to next week and the latest chapter of book club. I can’t wait to get started on Out Stealing Horses; the funny thing is I didn’t think it was making much of an impression on me as I was actually reading it but now I can’t stop thinking about it. I also keep trying to discuss it with people who haven’t read it (ie. Dave) and have now explained the entire plot to him thereby rendering it (he says) completely unreadable. Oops. I also have a yen to go to Norway (the open country, the trees, the rain storms…). So finally having a good chat about the book will be very welcome.

 

Really, this is all just a symptom of the severe case of cultural overload I am suffering. I’m reviewing books, films, theatre, even lunchtimes are jammed full of flipping culture (I went to the first rather fabulous Listen at Lunch at Northern Stage- actors read short stories- unexpectedly brilliant). My brain needs a sleep. So if I start talking about the wrong book on Wednesday you know what is up. See you April 1st (Not an April Fool!).
