And not just because I’ve had ‘Silver Bells’ stuck in my head for most of the afternoon.
Today was one of the very best kind of days, it was a day when books arrive in the mail. And really when you get more than one book in the mail, it’s definitely like Christmas, a very strange a skewed version of Christmas certainly, but Christmas none the less.
I almost feel like I’ve been given the books for free, because it’s taken ages for the books to get here from amazon UK. The last time Jasper Fforde released a Thursday Next book I had trouble sourcing it locally so I decided to make life easier for myself by ordering it directly from amazon and their stupid recommendation system (by stupid I mean alarmingly accurate) showed up another book by Jasper Fforde which I didn’t know was out and the last Artemis Fowl book.
Of course I did see the latest Thursday Next book in the shops – typical! Last time when I asked about ‘One of our Thursdays is Missing’ I got looked at like I was asking for The Illiad in it’s original Greek.
Of course the next question is which to read first?
