So it’s been a bit of a week. In case you missed it, British politics has been crazy busy and that means that my working life has been too. So busy in fact that one night last week I didn’t even make it home from work. And this week may well be similarly busy. Wish me luck. So the reading list is somewhat short and sweet this week – my brain has been fried and having trouble settling on anything.

And there was a fair bit of book purchasing that went on too – not only two new release hardbacks during the week but also a bit of a second hand spree on Sunday at Cannons Ashby’s secondhand bookshop. Thank you National Trust!
Bonus photo: a bit of historic home library porn from the aforementioned Cannons Ashby. The gardening stuff is in the cupboards because the owner of the time it’s set up as was a keen gardener and that’s where he kept it!
