Next Reading


I mentioned in my last post that today is my birthday, and from my wonderful partner I had the above edition of Franz Kafka’s ‘Metamorphosis and other stories’. I had planned to read Joseph Conrad’s ‘Heart of Darkness’ next, but think that I will dive into the Kafka first. Expect thoughts to follow!

Today- 29th August

I haven’t posted for a few days, but as today is my BIRTHDAY, I thought that I’d make up for the lack and post a few a bit later as a little present from me to anyone that cares to read this blog.

Also, a big THANK YOU! to my 14th follower, who decided to follow Electric Puppet today! You can find her here:


Please check out and follow her page.

For anyone interested, today is also the birthday of Richard Attenborough (90) and Lenny Henry (54), and would have been the birthday of John Locke (1632-1704), Ingrid Bergman (1915-1982), Thom Gunn (1929-2004) and Michael Jackson (1958-2009), amongst many others. Oh, and today is the Feast of the Beheading of John the Baptist… Nice.
