..and it was so, so good. I'd like to write about it in a seperate post, but I find books quite hard to write about... or maybe just too much like hard work.
I have always loved to read (apart from between the ages of around 12-15 when I gave it up for a while), and I remember when I was small we had a chart in school where you had to write every book you read on it and write a little report about it too. I think you got a star for each book you read as well.
I hated writing book reports. I just read my usual amount of books and then wrote a report on just a few of them, so my amounts on the wall were no where near what I had actually read, and yet I'd still read more than anyone else.
That's just a lengthy way of saying that I'd like to write about Blue Nights and all the other books I've read this year (there's a list at the top of the blog if you are interested)... but I may not get round to it.
So in case I don't, I'll just say that this book was great, Joan Didion is great.
Happy Christmas from Bert-Elf and Santa-Sian
