Over Christmas I have read two books.

The first was Catching Monsters by David Bright. This book isn’t for the faint hearted. David Bright writes well, but this is not a book that gives you a nice happy glow inside. What is does do is reveal some of the things that he was involved in throughout his career. It was a compelling read and certainly showed me the pressures that the police csn be under.

The second book was A Planet for the President by Andrew Beaton. It is a funny satirical fiction book obviously having a go at the actions of the British and the USA in recent years. At several times it had me laughing outloud, yet also had several good twists. Well worth a read, particularly if you enjoy political things, e.g. 24 or the West Wing.

  1. Beautiful Chris – thanks. You have no idea how much I needed to read that – and I aspire to live it too.

    :: knowing that tomorrow morning my work will be cheerfully
    :: waiting for me, demanding my full attention again, as it
    :: should, but none the worse for having had to wait.

    Sadly tomorrow is my Fieldwork deadline for my degree and will fail if I don’t take care of it today. The only thing getting me through the stress and high blood pressure is the thought of the three months of relative ‘sabbath’ which will follow.

    Right that’s enough procrastination – onward!
