950 – Bookshopping

Today wemade a decision that we would go to Southampton. Really, there are only two shops that I am interested in at West Quay, shopping Mall at the centre of town. That’s the Apple Store – and to be honest, there is little point of going there unless you are going to buy something. There is nothing that I really browse for. The other shop I almost always enjoy visiting is Waterstones (or any other similar type book shop, or large second hand) bookshops.

I think I spent about an hour in the shop, looking at the The various sections. I have to admit that I tend not to look at fiction – perhaps I should? The new politics section is always interesting to look at, but there was nothing that grabbed my interest today. I had a good look at the science section, and there were quite a few books that I had a bit of a browse through, but nothing inspired me.

Moving across to the writing section. The trouble is, I don’’t really know what I’m looking for here. Even before I started this blog, I wanted to write, but I haven’t been able to focus on a single thread or topic that could turn in to a book. Hence you’ve ended up with 950 fairly random posts. Nothing coherent. It’s almost like I’m looking the book entitled “How to write the right book for you”.

Perhaps the travel section might do it? I quite like the Bill Bryson. His books are both informative and funny. A really good read. I’ve also enjoyed reading Tom Fort’s Channel Shore book. I was talking a lot about Gilbert White’s book, a natural history of Selborne I have the book and have been reading it on and off. It’s a really interesting book, but my attention span hasn’t let me read it in one go. It’s like a number of books I have, I’m slowly working through them.

I’m finding that I am spending a fair bit of time looking at the history section. Back many years ago, when I was at school or college, History was one of my favourite subjects, but like most of the things I was interested I wasn’t very good at it. I’m still not. But that doesn’t stop me from being interested.

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.
