mr spook

Back on the book readin waggon - and... so lollardy!

My brain has recently turned to book readin mush. The last 2 books i bought were aages ago and I abandoned both - one was a worthy but boring biog of polymathic Thomas Young, and the other a mildly (for him) annoying William Vollman book on the copernican revolution.

so anyway yesterday i hauled in

the last being my '3 for 2' freebie, honest! (i also re-bought "Darwin's Dangerous Idea" - the tombstone of a hardback i originally had was left behind during one move or another.)

munching through the maths one now. nom nom brane books! at last.

(that 'Hollow Earth' subtitle in full: The Long and Curious History of Imagining Strange Lands, Fantastical Creatures, Advanced Civilizations and Marvelous Machines Below the Earth's Surface)
