Haven't found anything interesting lately. Pity...

Also read the sequel to "A year in Provence"; "Tojours Provence". Good, but as sequels go, not quite as witty as the first one, and anyway, this is a whole new layout of book. Still was highly enjoyable though.
Just read Ernest Hemingways "The Snows of Kilimanjaro and other stories". Good book, a little confusing perhaps, and more than likely a trifle brutal, but still a nice piece of literature...

I recently came across a whole horde of books; some good, some bad, some boring, some enthralling and some which kept me laughing for hours on end, hours after I'd finished reading the books. Anyway, one of the very memorable ones was "A Year in Provence" by Peter Mayle. It describes the quaintness, the oddities and of course some of the great gastronomic and social delights of living in Provence. A very funny book, a must read for those in need of a little tikling of the funny bone.
