An Amazonian Delivery
A long-awaited parcel arrived from Amazon today. It was delivered by Parcelnet who have an interesting delivery technique: namely running up to the front door, ringing the doorbell depositing the parcel against front door and scampering off. Very bizarre.
Anyway...my life is now three books richer. I wanted to get the newly-published MIMOSA by Susan Wilkinson (who is giving a talk on the topic at the Anglo-Argentine Society, 3 Belgrave Square, London, SW1X 8PJ at 6.30pm on the 3rd October) so I also bought a couple of books I've had my eye on for some time while I was about it: WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN by Lionel Shriver (behind the times on this one, I know. Everyone else has read this a couple of years ago at least) and ARTHUR AND GEORGE by Julian Barnes for book group in October.
I can't start right away, however, because I still have a couple of novels I want to finish first. I am going to have such an indulgent weekend.
