when inspiration fails, links!

I'm afraid this is going to be a very short post, because while I have a couple of blog post ideas turning over in my head (French provincial women in 'Madame Bovary' and 'Fire in the Blood', 'memento mori' and celebrity) they are as yet only half-formed. 

But I just read a blog post on reading books in translation that struck me as particularly true, and reading through this blog so far I am really liking her observations on many book-related things. So you might like to check out Book Snob. And I will write a proper blog post of my own soon, honest.

    and here I am in Gaza (not eyeless) just looking out for something to read...

  2. Hopefully Book Snob can help there, even if I can't!

    How go things in Gaza?

    not many bookshops here, and even if there are, they sell books in Arabic which I either can't, or wouldn't want to read. Actually now I am in Beit Jala, the situation is a little better, but I think I will rely on my small supply of brought books
