    Currently burning through the Flavia de Luce series. Pretty great if you like detective novels.

    I’m about to start reading two very different takes on the life and work of Lewis Carroll. We he really a paedophile who never went any further than fantasizing, or a lonely man caught up the Victorian ‘cult of childhood.’? I suspect both but I’ll get back to you once I’ve polished the books off.

    The Victorian’s idolized childhood to a fetishistic level. It was regarded as one of the highest states of being; pure innocence and a connection with nature unsurpassed by any other condition. I deliberately sought out some books about Carroll after revisiting Gavin Millar/Dennis Potter’s film ‘Dreamchild.’ I’ve just got a very inquisitive mind and once I get fixed on a subject, I have to find out as much about it as possible. My interests are pretty wide ranging. Thank you for asking such an interesting question tiki.

    Is it just me, or is the first question similar to:
    “Do you wash your hands after using the bathroom ?”
    Or are you just referring to “analog” ink and paper books ?

    A little late on this one but I’m reading L.A. Confidential by James Ellroy on my break at work and ’48 by James Herbert at home. Also, Shoes, I finally got around to reading Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell and I was so taken with it I ended up buying The Ladies of Grace Adieu before I’d finished.

    I just read “The Pigeon Pie Mystery” by Julia Stuart.
    A strange little whodunit set in Victorian times.
    The only way to describe it is cute….in a nice way…
