It’s World Book Day! We did a roaring trade in the bookshop this morning - there never seems to be any rhyme or reason behind foot traffic/sales in there, but maybe people were aware of the occasion and had book-buying in mind.

Apparently March 6th will be 'World Book Day'.  At work we have all been asked to contemplate upon the matter of our favourite book.

Of course that's one of those annoying questions for which there is no neat answer.  Myself, I find I like lots of different things for lots of different reasons, at different times.  Not just with books, either.  It's the same with all of these 'ranking' exercises: what are your top five songs, which 3 books would you take to a desert island, who's your favourite actor, what's your favourite colour...

Aargh!  I'm stumped.  With me, favourites are a bit like those sacred occasions whose exact delineations largely depend upon the alignment of the full moon with the optimum condition of the insides of a recently-slaughtered chicken. :-)  The Great Answer to All Such Questions: "It Depends."

Eavesdrop, snoop, and sigh with yearning…

This journal is not a private diary, it is more like an occasional, imaginary column. Therefore, much of it is on public display. However, if you want to read my occasional attempts at creative writing, my Caution Elf tells me I should only show that stuff to my friends. You know what to do. :-)

NB: If you add me in an unsolicited fashion, please introduce yourself. Otherwise I will probably ignore you.
