The Week In Books: June 4 – June 10

Ummmm.  Yeah.  So I thought I didn’t read much last week – and then this week I read even less.  Why?  Well it was a super busy week at work – and then I spent the weekend back at my old Uni celebrating 50 years of the student radio station that I spent so many hours* in over the course of my degree.  And just like back in my undergrad days – I spent so much time with my student radio friends that I didn’t really do anything else.  And you know what?  I’m not even sorry.  There’ll be other weeks and more time to read – but the chance to spend time with people you haven’t seen in a decade doesn’t come around every day.  In fact, this was the biggest gathering of  us all since a bunch of them graduated at the end of my second year, right before I went off to spend my year in France.  And it was amazing.

One book bought – and I was so busy catching up with my friends that I didn’t go into even one of the Oxfam bookshops in York, let alone both of them, so no books bought!

*Probably more hours than I spent on my actual degree if I’m honest.  But hey, I honestly believe that I wouldn’t be have the career I have in my day job without all those hours.
