Today I woke up and realized that it’s Thursday. Where did this week go? And I still have a few deadlines before I can go to a pub on Friday night. Saying that, here’s a quick post about Malaysia and Sense and Sensibility. What, you don’t remember Malaysia playing a role in the novel. You’re right it didn’t. But while I was on holiday I reread this book for my 50 year challenge. I don’t plan on reviewing the novel besides saying it’s one of my favorites by Austen. This was my second or third time reading it, but I’m sure I’ll associate it now with Malaysia since the views were amazing when I found the time to read.
And now I have a confession. Many of you know I’ve been on a book ban, which meant I couldn’t buy any books all this year. Well, I only packed Sense and Sensibility for my trip. Normally I pack two or three and then don’t even get through one. So I thought I was being smart by only bringing one. Long story short, before boarding the plane for two seven hour flights I stopped in the bookshop and bought Kafka on the Shore. It was an emergency, after all. A week later, the Better Half took me to a couple of used bookstores for my birthday. It was wonderful. I’m not sure if I’ll implement the book ban again.
