Starting Out

In September 2008 I started an English and American Literature degree at Goldsmiths, London, for the next three years I read numerous novels, plays, poems, short stories as well as studying literary theory and criticism. It took me about a year after graduating to get back into reading properly for pleasure.

In September 2012 I started to take note of every book I read in a little Moleskine notebook that had lain unused on my desk. Since then I have read 210 books (only accidentally repeating one), with nothing to show except a list in this notebook by my bed. I have run out of space on my bookshelves for new books but I will keep buying and reading books for ever.

In January 2017 I started this page, with the intention to share what I am reading and my thoughts on the books I am reading. Not necessarily reviewing each book but taking a bit of time to process my thoughts about the book. Some may be short posts, some may be long, some may digress off topic and some may stay totally on focus, but that is only an echo from the book itself. As well as writing about the books themselves I will probably add a bit of the context to my digesting of the book, such as where I am, what I was doing and maybe even what music or food were involved in the period of time.
