What I Just Finished Reading
Straight Outta Crawley by Romesh Ranganathan. This is his autobiography. I really enjoyed it. He had a way of telling all his embarrassing stories so they were funny. What I found interesting was when he was working at a boring, soul-destroying job he discovered that having a toilet cry helped (it was once he was having to do it regularly that he realised that wasn’t sustainable and became a teacher instead). I didn’t know the toilet cry was a thing that existed out in the world in general.
What I Am Currently Reading
Star Trek: Discovery: The Enterprise War by John Jackson Miller. I only discovered this existed last week – but then it did only come out last week. Although it’s a Discovery book it’s all about the Enterprise – Discovery people only get mentioned in it. I decided not to wait to see if the library got round to getting it and bought it. And then spent a whole evening trying to get it on my ebook reader because Adobe Digital Editions decided it didn’t like it for no reason. I have now bought a Kobo, although I am reading this book on my Sony ebook reader. I can’t compare them properly until I have the (red) cover for the Kono, but on balance the Sony is a better ebook reader.
What I Am Reading Next
Magic For Liars by Sarah Gailey. This was a book mentioned in the podcast Writing Excuses. Their description was basically: murder mystery at a magic school, written for adults. I was sold. And it’s finally at my local library, waiting for me to pick it up.
