You will have seen from the sidebar that I have been reading Iain M Banks’ Matter for a couple of weeks now (with a slight detour to Michael Palin as discussed a couple of days ago). I am not making much progress with the novel, being about a third of the way through, but this isn’t because I’m not enjoying it; on the contrary I’m really savouring the story and that’s part of the problem. I want to sit down for at least an hour at a time to immerse myself in the world of the Culture, but pressures of work and the daily commute (which means I’m standing most of the time in crowded carriages which makes a book this size difficult to read) mean I just haven’t been able to find that dedicated time. However, today is a rare day off work and although I have the usual errands to run I intend to carve out a slot for Matter, so watch this space.

Bride of the Book God

Scottish, in my fifties, love books but not always able to find the time to read them as much as I would like. I’m based in London and happily married to the Book God.

I also blog at Bride of the Screen God (all about movies and TV) and The Dowager Bride, if you are interested in ramblings about stuff of little consequence

If you would like to get in touch you can contact me at brideofthebookgod (at) btinternet (dot) com.
