Weak Weak Weak
Despite all my good intentions, I bought five books yesterday.
JD Robb is one of my "old-faithfulls" but the others look like they could be very good.
I wanted to get Peter Godwin's other book about Zimbabwe, but it's still in hardback so I bought Mukiwa instead.
And the Qiu XiaoLong book is interesting - it's described as "an Inspector Chen mystery" which is like an "Inspctor Morse story" I guess, but set in modern-day China.
Just to remind myself why I shouldn't buy any more books, I have collected all my other to-be-read books and piled them up.
I can't wait to get into these books but I seem to be stuck reading The Poe Shadow at the moment. The problem is that it's not really that exciting so I keep forgetting about it and reading magazines, old books etc. I even have magazines that I haven't read - a National Geographic has been lying on the kitchen table for the last week, still in its plastic cover.
