We went to Herne Bay today
The sunset across Pegwell bay towards Deal/Sandwich
as you can see was quite something on the way home today.
I was going to ramble on a bit now. Really I don't have that much to say and seem to be a bit sleepy, something I put down to it being so close to the middle of winter. Well I guess more the middle of less daylight, I think it is only about another week to the shortest day.
Book wise I am reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, I would say it falls into the category of historical teen fiction and is set in Nazi Germany, mostly during WW2. I am about a quarter of the way through and would say that it's a book that would interest a lot of readers.
Australian author, my previous book was the new Haruki Murakami, Killing Commendatore, that was very good, we are very unlikely to get it in stock for some time and it will probably set you back the best part of £15 wherever you get it.
I see you can by the digital file on ebay at the moment for £1.75 although I assume that this not the official version as the Kindle download is £9.99 from Amazon. I wonder where you would stand having bought it from Ebay if it transpired to be a pirated copy?
To be honest I don't think magic realism is a style of writing that lends itself to being read on a device, but then I suppose that depends on who you are and how you manage different styles and formats.
I find I get on fairly well with light adventure mystery fiction on a device, what was once called "pulp fiction" but the rest doesn't go so well for me.
I suppose it's a whole and relatively new area, certainly giving me ideas as to why the bookshop here in Ramsgate is doing fairly ok at the moment.
One of yesterday's customers came to a book he had been reading the previous evening when the Kindle file just stopped about two third of the way through. Fortunately we had a copy, and I haven't heard of this happening to anyone else.
Here are the rest of the sunset shots
I didn't think sunset photography lent itself to, out of the car window, but there you go.
