The sounds of silence

The rest of the month is dedicated to getting a publication out the door, finishing off some really interesting consulting work and, of course, to writing my dissertation. This means I won't really be writing or reading anything online, so if anyone comes across something interesting or fun, please leave a comment here or email me. Otherwise it's some strengthening yoga, some modified knitting, some warm cooking, and some good company.

In case anyone is planning on doing some pleasure reading over the holidays here's a quick list of the novels I most enjoyed reading this year (even though they were all published earlier): Brick Lane, The Crimson Petal and the White, Epileptic, On Beauty, The Passion, Perfume, Small Island. And I'm always looking for recommendations. Hint hint.

Stay warm.

Well, staying warm won't be a problem from where I's more like staggering under the weight of a thousand suns from one air-conditioned space to another.

But seeing as three of the books on your list are favourites of mine (the passion, perfume, the crimson petal and the white) I will definitely keep you in mind for recommendations, when I get the headspace for reading fiction back.

hope you have a peaceful and rejuvenating break,

I somehow think you'll enjoy Salt by Mike Kurlansky... about the impact of salt on anything from vocabulary, cultures and politics.
