bookshopSo after the excitement of Star Trek on Sunday at the London IMAX, a short walk to the South Bank for dinner was followed by a mini-spree in a local bookshop which resulted in the purchase of a few more books, showing that my good intentions have almost certainly been thrown completely out of the window. The Bride’s haul consists of:

  • The Logic of Life by Tim Harford – a follow up to the Undercover Economist which I enjoyed last year. This is about how we all make decisions and what the economic impulse underneath those decisions might be;
  • The Double by Jose Saramago – so you’re watching a rented video and you see an actor who is identical to yourself in every physical way. You go and look for them, don’t you?
  • Reading Like a Writer by Francine Prose – a guide for people who love books and for those who want to write them, according to the subtitle blurby thing, and what could be fairer than that?
