Today I bought three books which look to be very interesting. I had a little gander but can't wait to properly go through them. They are

Conservatism by Lord Hugh Cecil
Occultism: Its Theory and Practice by Sirdar Ikbal Ali Shah
The Chrysalids by John Wyndham (I read The Day of the Triffids twice last year - this one is bound to be good)

I'm taking these with me to China in my Carry-On Hemp Bag.

Other books I'm taking with...

The War for South Africa by Bill Nasson
The Boer War: A Bombardiers Memoirs by J.E Mitton
No Charge for Delivery: Telegrams from the Anglo-Boer War compiled by C.W.L de Souza


Watching the Tree by Adeline Yen Mah
Master of the World by Jules Verne
Death in the Bunker by Ian Kershaw
The Green Rain by Paul Tabori
For Whom the Bell Tolls by You know Who
Lost Horizon by James Hamilton
On the Road by Jack Kerouac (Enjoyed Dharma Bums but haven't read this one)


The Bosman I like: A personal selection of Herman Charles Bosman by Patrick Mynhardt (which I've read so many times now)

Bag's a little heavy but they're all worth it.

I just hope I can get out of here since planes are being cancelled due toe the Volcanic ash cloud...Yikes...If I don't leave I will become an illegal alien because my UK Visa Expires on thursday.


  1. You need a i- watshamacall it thing
    ipad ? for all those books and more in one gadget.
    at least you are prepared to go to the other side of the world !
    Will hold thumbs for not turning into an alien

  2. those are quite cool and handy. but some of these books are not available in e-book format and I guess I'm old fashioned, I like the smell of books and bindings and turning pages without pressing a button :) it's good for travelling though and I have considered it.
