I am reading bits of lots of things but haven’t finished any of the stuff I mentioned last month. So the only new book on my virtual shelf is Death of Kings by Bernard Cornwell. This is the sixth in his Saxon/Uhtred series and is rather good. Also picked up On Creative Writing: Manaaging Language in the Digital Age.

I have been listening to a lot of Beethoven and Elgar. Just got hold of Nabucco an early Verdi opera I have wanted for ages.
