- Dalek I Loved You by Nick Griffiths; enjoyable but not quite as Who-packed as I expected. There’s a lot of shy-lad-from-the-middle-classes, and some of the lists feel like unnecessary padding. But the bits about Doctor Who, and specific stories from it, are fun.
- Advertising Photography by Lou Lesko; Lou sent me a copy of this and I found it fascinating – partly because I know nothing about the world of professional photography, in advertising or any other field, so it was intriguing to discover it; and partly because some of Lou’s practical tips for managing time, projects, people and workload translate well to freelance journalism too. Thanks for the book, Lou.
- Jennifer Government, by Max Barry; an enjoyable satirical thriller which has sat unread on the bookshelf for years, since I picked it up in a charity shop on impulse. Fun.
Now digesting The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, because I’ve never read any of it before.
