Yes, yes, I know it’s Thursday. It’s been that kind of a week.
I’m just coming to the end of Bill Bryson’s book about his travels around England, and have mostly enjoyed it. There are some absolutely laugh out loud moments in it, but I have found my mind wandering a little at times. I think it’s one of those books that’s probably better dipped into a little at a time rather than read all at once.
Next up is Caitlin Moran’s How to Be A Woman, which I’ve been meaning to read since it was published. I have read the prologue, which I found very disappointing, but will reserve further judgement until I’ve got further into it.
Has anybody else been watching this BBC Three series? It’s kind of a scientific blind date – hundreds of couples were matched up based on their scientific compatibility on paper, and followed for a year to see what happens. Some dropped out of the experiment immediately, having hated each other upon sight, some are in serious relationships a year on, and then there’s everything in between as well. It’s rare that there’s something that’s a completely original idea on TV these days, and I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to have a nose into people’s relationships.
I’ll try and be on time for next week’s post!
