  1. I'm pretty busy and have tons of books to read, but I was thinking that if the "led" reading circles weren't a success we should move to an unelected ad hoc private circle where we just read books we wanted to no matter how obscure, etc...


    I'll let you know once I've picked up a copy, anyway.

  2. Hey there Mac. All's well with me, although generally quiet. Haven't been reading much lately. A 2 week road trip through to the Alps and back will get me back to reading in bulk. I'm going to empty a Waterstones some time later this week.


    How are things with you?

  3. Oh. Er. Yes. So I was. I do feel comfortable that my ignorance of Italian wine is not much greater than almost anyone else's. It makes Burgundy seem positively simple.


    I await your proposal with, er, interest?

  4. Was I talking about Italian wine? When? How? I don't even know anything about Italian wine, really, except that I like it, and it's impossible to work out what's good except by looking at the price-tag.


    I'm good. I've not been posting much lately. Desperately trying to churn my way through Jan Morris's Venice, which has spectacularly failed to grab my attention so I've been at it for well over a month. And I've been arguing politics and football on other websites.


    How are you?

  5. Hey there. Sorry I didn't reply yesterday. I was dragged outside to do gardening all day by the gf.

  6. Ha. I'll press the reply button and see where it crops up this time.


    You're not the only one in on a Saturday night, although here I'm preparing to cook for 10 tomorrow and look after the GF's sister who's visiting from the US for the first time.


    Nothing wrong with Italian food and Italian wine. Although I still don't really understand Italian wine. Just know that I like it.

  7. Hi there. Thanks for the friend request thingy. All is good. You?
