Book Loot: Week Ending November 21st, 2010

New Books:

Surprisingly restrained considering my afternoon(s) spent in Kinokuniya in Sydney.

Marginalia

I’ve had an amazing week. Words cannot even begin to express just how great it has been. I saw my favourite band the Manic Street Preachers for the first and second time, met them after both shows, and got a photo with Nicky Wire and James Dean Bradfield. This is a band that has shaped, influenced, changed, and inspired me for over twelve years, so this week was pretty damn important to me and they didn’t let me down. I was on the barrier for both shows, right up the front, screaming and singing my little lungs out. Amazing. And, to have the band be so gracious and attentive to their fans was just a bonus. Meeting fellow fans has also been an encouraging experience.

So, as it was, I didn’t exactly spend much time worrying about blogging. The only conclusion that I’ve managed to reach is that I want to continue writing about books and reading with enthusiasm and sincerity. Posting is going to continue being slightly irregular while I try and “figure things out.” Trust me, I am cringing as I write that. It sounds like the “it’s not you, it’s me” of book blogging.

  1. Oh, I love Kinokuniya … it is so difficult to restrain oneself isn’t it. I look forward to seeing reviews of these in the future. Oh, and I think it’s important not to let blogging drive you. Post when you want to. I for one don’t have any expectations of when or how often the bloggers I read should write. I just check it when I can.

    • Thank you for your comment on expectations and bloggers, I realize that all the pressure I feel about blogging is ONLY coming from me, which is silly really, this is supposed to be a fun little side project to reading. Definitely feeling a bit more chilled out about it all now!
