I’m not going to start with the old ‘who has the time?’ line. I mean, at the end of the day, who has the time? Everyone is busy. But if everyone is busy, then how do books get written? How do committees get organised? And how does society ever move forward with anything worth while?
It’s a busy world, but what is it they say — if you want something done, ask a busy person.
I’m amazed by the number of people who have time for soap operas and celebrity gossip, but they don’t have time to read a decent book — what is that all about?
Now, I say all of this and here I am procrastinating, because I haven’t time to write a full review post this week, but I do intend to rectify that sooner rather than later!
I’ve finished the Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett and In Bitter Chill by Sarah Warde in the last week and now I’m moving onto Elizabeth is Missing, but unfortunately, tonight it’s all work reading, so I’ll be lucky to get a start on anything truly entertaining!
Ah well, the weekend is coming, right?
And then it’s headlong into the new novel and a fiction fest!!!
