Vale, Saramago

One of my favourite living writers has passed away; Nobel Prize winning Jose Saramago.

'Blindness' is in my Top 10 novels, ever.

He has the honour of being one of only three writers to have a quote magnetised to my fridge and it is this:

"...but when all is said and done, whoever goes, goes, and whoever remains, remains."


In other news, I've neglected this blog for a long time; more than a year in fact. I've read some good books in that time.

I'm going to start it up again...

That's easy for you to say.

And what Cath said.

When you say 'again', when exactly?

Well well well the whispers are true.
