Visitors, work and getting out more haven’t left much time for the blog (or anything else) but the eagle-eyed may spot a new feature called ‘Recently Read.’ For a while I’ve been envious of those blogs (particularly Typepad) that let you add book covers and comments to the sidebars. WordPress is quite sticky in terms of what you can and can’t do in terms of ‘widgets’, but I’ve settled for joining Library Thing and adding a feed from my profile page to here. Up to now I’ve used Facebook Visual Bookshelf (now called Reading Social) for keeping tabs on my reading online, but time is running out for my Facebook presence, so Library Thing it is. As far as I can see, LT doesn’t have a ‘Wants to read’ category, which I like on Facebook, but I suppose I can cope without it!
I’m still reading Don’t Move, a rather sombre offering with a very distinctive style. I think it’s a bit too sombre for my current mood, but I am in awe of the translator (and possibly all translators) for convincing me that what I’m reading is exactly what the author intended.
