He played by flipping peanuts to squirrels

31 January 2008

Finally found the new Fred Vargas book out in a proper size. I hate the over large paperback. Trade size or whatever. So awkward so I put off buying Wash this blood clean from my hands until now. It still isn’t as neat as Seeking whom he may devour but it’ll do.

I also bought The Assassination of Jesse James by the coward Robert Ford because of the film. And I read the opening paragraph or two. Seems good. And it has a pretty cover, don’t you think?

Jesse James

To be honest I shouldn’t really be blogging at the mo’. I should be tidying my room. But I couldn’t be arsed. It is cleaner than it usually is, no clothes on the floor. A fair few books and other whatnots scattered about. But de mudder, who I’m tidying for, can deal with that. Besides, it isn’t like she’ll be here long. One night, then the rugby on Sat and then she’s off. She’s seen a hell of a lot worse :)

  1. It is acually a nice cover, though I hate those film tie ins (i.e. the bit about Brad Pitt). Oh and Trade paperbacks are my least favourite edition ever, so bulky and annoying without the longevity of hardbacks to compensate.

    TGWAOF: I know exactly what you mean, I was supposed to have stuck in a footnote saying "apart from the Now a Major Movie" bit, but I didn't. And I'm too lazy to make with the editing.

    The ones I really hate though are the ones with the actors from the film emblazoned across the front. Yuck.
