…one man's contribution to the Weeeeerly Wild World

Books

Book preference: #second-hand #non-fiction #hardbacks

I always have a book (or two… or three) on the go (okay, I try to limit myself to one at a time unless they are considerably different). The challenge for me is to find the time (and sometimes motivation) to write about what intrigues me whilst reading them.

Currently reading…

Pyramid of Secrets by Alan F. Alford

– The architect of the Great Pyramid reconsidered in the light of creational mythology.

Here’s a recent blog post of interest:

Edgar Allan Poe – Selected Writings

 

Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales

I picked up a copy of this from a charity shop – the old English is a challenge but made easier when I acquired a translated copy.

Recently read…

Nature’s Ways by Ruth Binney

The Desiderata of Happiness by Max Ehrmann

The Wind in my Wheels by Josie Dew
