No, never really a fan, but I am running out of titles which generally convey what is happening out here: which is very little. Only Fleck's wake is additional testimony to the electronic evidence that we continue to advance across the South Atlantic at about 5kts. Touch wood (done that), we do have good wind still, more than I had really hoped for, and long may it continue. I am starting to worry that I shall run out of reading material, I struggled to the end of AC Graylings 'Meaning of things', I can be quite cussed like that, and then ripped through John Lanchester's 'Capital' (Interconnected but different story lines from London, just pre crash). As one reviewer remarked, with rather flawed logic, 'might seem cliched if it weren't so damn good'. Anyway, easy reading, and as one of my 'three for two' at WHS at Heathrow Airport, good value. Now I am reading a post war (1946) Scottish Crime Thriller called the Hanging Shed, It has been sitting on my ereader for ages, I hope I didn't pay too much for it.
