Preparations for a new year

Today I went to Borders to get myself a magnificent new diary - a day to a page.

Unfortunately there was also a book sale on (as there always is) and, although I have sworn to myself that I am not going to buy any more books until I've made some more progress in diminishing the TBR pile, I succumbed...

I also bought myself a new laptop bag on a trip to Staples a couple of days ago (to get a planner for 2008)

which has pockets not only for my laptop (so I can write anywhere)

but also my new ipod touch (my much-treasured Christmas present).

Life seems sweet.

Lovely purchases. I've had a few similar moments myself in the past few days. I think you will enjoy On Chesil Beach, and it will only take you a couple of hours to read so will not impede your dents to the reading pile too much!

Happy New Year Clare from sweltering Melbourne.

I notice you have Mr Pip in the pile of books. I read it yesterday and very much liked it. It was one of the books I selected when I was claiming a book voucher I received for Christmas.

OK that means I'd better stay as far away from Borders as possible while I'm in the City tomorrow or my bank manager and I are going to have a falling out.
