271/366 Reading Habits

This is the Viking Venus. She came in to Portsmouth this morning, escorted by two tugs. The tugs always impress me. One is going in reverse ahead of the ship and one astern. A very skilful job, and I would guess not without its dangers. But, it was nice to see the ship come in.

I’m still on the Ecclesiastical history of the English. The Romans understandably continue to have a significant impact on life in the 5th and 6th Centuries,although a translation, the book was written be a man who was there. Incredible.

Today, the next issue of Black & White Photography turned up. It seems only a few days since the last time I wrote about the magazine. More on that next week.

We have a fair few books on our shelves, we both like books even in this internet age. Partly, I have great difficulty in giving books away and would certainly not consider throwing them out. But we have a lot of books, and I confess that a large number of them are unlikely to ever be read. But they will be used as reference books.

There was a point in the lockdowns (was it as I was beginning this blog run? I’ll have to look back) when I started to read the books on the shelf that if I didn’t read them now, I never would. I would choose a book and start reading, I would only interrupt reading it to read my magazines, which having paid to receive I was determined to read from cover to cover, and I do. I would read the book at Breakfast, and lunch and in the evening.

For some reason, at the moment I am only doing the evening reading. I’m not sure why. The impact of course is that it is taking me longer to read a book than it did earlier in the lockdown. I am going to try to get back in to the old habit.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
