Last week, I rediscovered my love for works of fiction.
One of life’s little pleasures – spending all day in a book-lined library. (Yes, these still exist.) A lovely feeling that never gets old.
A brilliant post by Peter Bregman, on how to read a book a week. His method promises to help you get through a non-fiction book very quickly, by identifying and reading mainly the salient parts. And the active way in which you engage with the content means that you will retain more of what you read. I’m going to try this out.
Something to look out for: a new book by acclaimed wine critic, Jancis Robinson. This slim volume will tell you the key things you need to know about wine. You don’t need to be an expert in oenology in order to appreciate wine and wine-making. The 24-hour Wine Expert promises to be a fun guide to the essentials. I’m looking forward to reading this book. Publication date: 4 February 2016.
I am reading ‘All in good time’, an autobiography by George Daniels, one of the most renowned watchmakers of modern times. He rose from humble beginnings to achieve serious recognition in many quarters as one of the best watchmakers in the world.
