Bibliomaniac: An Obsessive's Tour of the Bookshops of Britain
About this deal
I chose Bibliomaniac with some trepidation, having yet to find a book about books that doesn’t revere long dead white men and assorted tedious classics, so I was pleased to discover Ince’s taste tends to be rather more eclectic, if not eccentric. Also he gives insights into the improvisational nature of his shows, brilliantly bizarre questions from the audience, his uncanny ability to be mistaken for a bookseller and the real booksellers who never fail to support him after British Rail does just that without delay. In which case, roll up your sleeves, Mr Eliot, and we’ll see the kind of mettle of which you’re made.

I’m also reading Myths of Gender: Gender Politics and the Construction of Sexuality by Anne Fausto Sterling, who’s a very interesting biologist and kind of activist. Marjorie Taylor Greene, and adviser Rudy Giuliani, recounting how Giuliani groped her backstage during Trump’s Jan.If you are putting off writing that moany letter to the council, simply flick through and read a town installment at random, you'll feel bouyed enough to get your shit together.

For sociologist Kahn-Harris, the warning message inside Kinder Surprise eggs – that tiny slip of paper covered in 37 languages and eight different scripts – is nothing short of revelatory.He’s also slightly awkward, never quite what he feels people expect and just wonderfully open about it all. Nonetheless, the book appealed to me in rather a similar way to those books like Horror Movies - it took me back to my youth when I used to really like working through titles that were probably more strictly reference books (I've even been known to read a Pevsner end to end).
