@JonnyGeller Tim Allen is also former drug dealer; caught with 650g of cocaine he ratted out 21 colleagues. Not a terribly nice individual.
About this card: sometimes i see thingsOn Wednesdays I like to post an older card and then spend the rest of the day going off topic. Today I'm in the Netherlands. The Dutch are a handsome people who, somewhat regrettably, like to speak gibberish. But today's card has nothing to do with Holland - what did you expect?
The Theory of the Leisure Class, Thorstein Veblen. Maps for Lost Lovers by Nadeem Aslam. Tigerman by Nick Harkaway. It's a fun list.
I'm in the south of Spain making a list of the next hundred books I want to read. The most immediate: The Silk Roads, by Peter Francopan.
@JonnyGeller ... hey now, don't do that - don't just casually mention in passing a new novel about George Smiley. That's huge, man, sheesh.
