Off the wagon?

As you may know, I'm on a book diet. It's now ten days since I bought a book.

That doesn't, obviously, include books for work, even though I buy them myself. I am trying to cut down on those too, however. It's becoming a miserable experience, peeking into my pigeonhole and seeing only pigeons roosting undisturbed by the postman. But it's good for me. Time to become slightly less capitalist.

A work book came today: Lea and Schoene's Posting the Male: Masculinities in Post-War Contemporary British Literature. I really hope the rest of the book is up to that pun. A bargain at £25.
