790 – Portsmouth

Today was one of those occasional trips across the water to Portsmouth. My goal once again was to pay a visit to Waterstones, the closest big bookshop. As usual, I started by browsing the latest non-fiction section just inside the front door. I have to say that there wasn’t anything that really grabbed my attention, so I moved upstairs only glancing in the direction of the fiction section as I ascended the escalator.

Today, I spent a fair bit of time looking at the British History section, something I don’t normally do. It was quite interesting. One in particular being a book about the Civil war. I also realised that whilst I know a very little bit about the tudors, I know nothing at all about the Plantagenets, that be worth a bit of reading. I think one thing I was looking for was some kind of time line, or books which mentioned hampshire I didn’t find either, but there again I didn’t look in every book.

From the history section I moved across to the religious section, I wanted to see if there was anything on spirituality, there probably was but I didn’t see it, so I moved on to the self help section. I really don’t know why I bother with this area as I never find the book that is going answer all my questions (which I know doesn’t exist anyway).

From the self help section, I move across to the writing about writing area. I did take a look at creative writing for dummies. It had a section on non-fiction, but I have a number of books covering that so I didn’t linger long.

Finally a quick look at the travel writing section some interesting books there, but nothing that really interested me. I would have spent a bit of time looking at the art and photography sections but I needed to catch the 1500 ferry, so I shall go there first on my next visit.

I didn’t buy anything, except being a bit naughty and having a Burger King for lunch.

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.
