ビッグ ゲット

Apparently, there's a store right in front of the British Library where you can get tons of classic, out of copyright books for £2. Yesterday, I lugged around two copies of this monstrosity (the MK library's hardback version and the paperback version I bought in the morning) as well as a collection of Nietzsche's work (Human, all too Human and Beyond Good and Evil). Burdened by heavy thoughts: I'm not complaining, by any means.

I think I'm going to take this and the latest issue of Monocle on the airplane with me next week. This book, it seems, needs to be read consistently (a bit every day) so that you stay fresh and remember who's who. I'm shooting to be done by the end of the month. 

I stopped tweeting and using Facebook during the week. It's the best thing that has ever happened to me. So much less on my mind. So much work getting done. Once this thing in Egypt ends, I can will be completely unfettered in getting my work done.

This thing in Egypt though, 'huh? Really amazing to watch unfold in real time.
