    I have A Reading Diary by Alberto Manguel on my TBR pile. Actually, I’ve tried reading it once, but really couldn’t get into it. I know it’s a book that is loved in general, but I guess it’s not for me? Maybe I should try again.

    I like the sound of Skylark and I’m curious about the Turkish poetry.

    I hope you enjoy all of the books 🙂

    I haven’t been able to see pictures on your blog for a few days, Stu (FYI) but it only seems to be some of them so I can’t see what you got. Also, the links don’t work for me (don’t know why – I am WP too).

    Whatever you got, hope you enjoy them 🙂

    Hope you enjoy The Library at Night as much as I did. The other two books you’ve got here look great, too!

    I’ve never, ever been a fan of poetry Stu, but that Alberto Manguelo looks v. interesting.

    Nice to see that Winston’s sneaked into in the shot too 🙂
