Christmas book tokens, hooray!

I bought Christopher Booker's The seven basic plots: why we tell stories and the Bloodaxe anthology Being alive which is a follow up to a previous anthology called Staying alive.

Books I want to buy this year: I want more art and photography books, if I can find ones that aren't too expensive. I'd like to buy a bit more poetry, particularly contemporary poetry and poetry in French and German.

Boring, boring boring. I got to college and found there were a bunch of set texts I needed straight away. So spent them on French grammar, Freud and Nietzsche. Helpful comment from dad on application for refund- 'why aren't you reading Nietzsche in German?' He also bought me another of my set texts for English, Roland Barthes' Mythologies, in French.

Ah. I nicked dad's copy of Mythologies in French. At least I'm guessing it was dad's since ma doesn't believe in literary criticism. But I am reading it. Or will be. Eventually.

Woods - you're welcome to have a browse through my photography books some time if you like. Or I can lend you my Photographers' Gallery membership card, which gets you 10 per cent discount on everything in their (excellent and extremely comprehensive) shop.
