Quick Links 26th July 2016

Each week I’ll try and post quick links to things that I’ve seen, read, inspired me or just sparked my interest in the previous week, with a little background and my thoughts and other things that I’ve been up to in the previous week. Mostly gardening, cooking and environmental stuff but not always.

A Week In Wildlife – In Pictures

Currently Reading

Normal Pt. 2 by Warren Ellis [GoodReads] I’m really enjoying this 4-part novella from Warren Ellis. It comes out on a Tuesday, so by the time you read this, part 3 will be served up to my kindle. It’s well written, and works so well as a multi-part story, I think this makes it even better than releasing the story all in one go. Still time to catch up if you fancy it, but make sure you start with Part 1!

The Fellowship of the Ring by J R R Tolkein [GoodReads] Maybe it’s the hot summer weather, but I’ve been a bit nostalgic for books that I read when I was younger over the school summer holidays. This is a reread, from when I was about 12 or 13 I’d guess. I read many of Tolkein’s books during my school summer holidays, starting with The Hobbit when I was still at primary school.

I’ve always been a Star Trek fan, so this looks interesting:

  1. When I was working my last office job, I saved up my holidays for the Christmas season, so for several years, there, I had about three weeks off; once you combined my holidays with the office shutdown for the holiday. For a few years, some of the time I spent when I was off work was to read all three Lord of the Rings books. It was a nice way to celebrate the extended holiday.

    Enjoy the book! There’s a lot of content there, which I don’t think one can absorb in one reading, so reading it a few times is probably a good thing. 🙂


    1. Hi David, I actually finished it yesterday, and did really enjoy it again. As a re-read I was quite surprised by how much I’d forgotten of the story, although it was some time ago that I last read it!

      My plan is to read the trilogy, but I think I need to read something else in between each one, so maybe by next weeks Quick Links I’ll be on The Two Towers – we’ll see.
