Just finished Trollope's Barchester Towers and The Warden. I was very excited to dig into Trollope as there were comparisons drawn to Balzac, and I did enjoy the books (it may help that I have some familiarity with church politics) but they were a little softer, less sharp, than what I remember from Balzac. Still, I'm glad I read them and look forward to lots more from him.

Before that I read Hard Times and Cranford, which were both rather strange books. Onward to North and South!

Shuggie is waiting til I have the current book finished. How is it so far?


Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Grimmer than Grimsby but well worth reading.


About halfway through this, it's bleak but an enjoyable read so far.

He's another due to be published next year I believe...

Not the first time I've read it but I find it very interesting and enjoyable and forgotten all the details.

A bit annoying the way they claim critical thinking and various branches of philosophy as subsets of economics, rather than the other way round but lots of interesting stuff.
Bugger off.
