I may not have been blogging, but I’ve certainly been reading (but not watching films – I’ve watched the beginnings of a lot of films, but all too often at the moment they don’t seem to interest me and I turn them off).
As for books, there’s two 9s and six 8s amongst these; and even then I’m feeling I’m being a little churlish towards a few of them. Notable are Kálmán Mikszáth’s The Siege of Beszterce, which I hope to write a post on one of these days, and Louis Couperus’s The Hidden Force. Couperus was a Dutch writer who enjoyed a remarkable vogue in England in the 1910-20s, so that almost all his books have been translated and are available out of copyright on the internet. I can imagine myself working my way through them.
(In terms of my current reading list, I’ve decided only henceforth to include books I’m at least halfway through – to cut down the numbers a bit).
