Recent Reads

 
Sometimes Jane Austen got things seriously wrong.  I came across this recently in Mansfield Park:
"If Fanny would be more regular in her exercise, she would not be knocked up so soon."
Hmm.  Quite the opposite.

Have been reading a remarkable book lately: Five Wounds, an illuminated novel by Jonathan Walker and Dan Hallett.  I'm not going to say much more about it right now, because I'll be reviewing it (as well having a chat with Messrs Walker and Hallett) over at The View From Here very soon, but you can find out more about it on Allen & Unwin's website.

If Fanny was more regular in her exercise, she'd get knocked up a lot sooner? LOL

Happy trails.
