Today's quote:

Saturday, May 14, 2016

It's been a full day

It's time to sit on the verandah and watch the sunset with a glass of wine in a matching colour. Visited the Moruya Markets in the morning, had lunch at the club, and picked up a pile of books at the local op-shop just before they closed their doors.

Now I'm spoilt for choice because each of the eight books is better than the next, starting with Bill Bryson's "Made in America" and Paul Theroux's "Sunrise with Sea Monsters", and continuing with "Freakonomics - A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything", "Moonwalking with Einstein", and "The Island of Lost Maps - A True Story of Cartographic Crime" (you may've gathered by now that I prefer non- to fiction).

That's five books = five days which gets me close to next weekend when I may start on "A Spectator's Guide to World Religions - An Introduction to the Big Five" and "The Book Club Companion - An Indispensable Reading List from Classics to Literary Respites".

Now let me get back to watching the sunset while snatching the odd pondering from "Snippets of Truth - Ponderings from a Word Watcher". I told you I'd picked up eight books! You weren't counting, were you?
