Recently, (okay January), The Guardian published an article about the winter ruining lunchtime reading. The writer couldn’t sit out amongst the snow nor sit at their workplace because of the noise. I agreed to the article. If I am reading the best-book-since-sliced-bread then I can concentrate through rustling crisp packets, VIP phone calls and the temptation of the internet. However, I prefer to read on the train, in bed, in the bath and on the sofa. Places away from the computer. I still read at lunchtime but I prefer to use the time to catch with blogs and websites. I thought I would share with you (and also help me organise my bookmarks).
Bookshelves – photographs of people’s shelves
The Intern – an anonymous blog about the publishing industry
The Literary Project – interviews with authors/agents/editors
Mslexia – Reading the blog.
Naomi Alderman – author of ‘Disobedience’ – one of the rest reads from last year.
Passive Aggressive Notes – because there are a lot of angry people in this world
Good Reads – a good place for storing my reading past, present and future.
And the blogs on my blogroll!
Do you read at lunchtime?
