This is enjoyable so far, growing up as a kid I read all the books she wrote, famous five, secret seven etc.. so to get some insight into her is great.



Also finally getting into

This week I read Emmanuel Carrere's "The Adversary: A True Story of Monstrous Deception" and Ryu Murakami's "In the Miso Soup." Both were okay but nowhere near their best work.

Overlook was pretty average, but it was a 16 part serial in New York Times Magazine.

Not sure what to start next. But I still haven't finished Eric Idle's book so I may finish that next.

Two brief Sandman related projects by Brief Lives artist.

Currently reading:
