'Ashes to Ashes' by Marcus Berkmann, an account of 35 years of watching England versus Australia. Good fun.

Hi,

 

I am hopeless - I tend to read three or four books in parallel.

 

Currently enjoying Mikhail Bulgakov's fantastic 'The Master and Margarita' - a wonderful blend of satire, commentary, history and what is essentially a great yarn:


I am new to the Folio Society, but I have to admit that it IS more fun to read a beautifully typeset, bound cloth book than reading the same text on my Kindle.

 

On the Kindle, I am currently working my way through Rick Atkinson's 'An Army at Dawn' on WW2 in North Africa, as well as revisiting Vladimir Kaminer's hilarious Russendisko, a highly humorous collection of brief anecdotes about the lives of two young russians who shortly after the fall of The Wall finds themselves in Berlin, ready for a good time.

 

Oh, and during lunch I re-read -just for kicks, not for the literary qualities of the work- Lemmy's autobiography, aptly titled 'White Line Fever'. While I do enjoy the occasional bout of Motorhead, I enjoy Lemmy the most when he's musing on some subject or the other - he's a great storyteller, IMO.

The book is great, I saw the movie first...I'm picturing George Clooney as I read about George Stout. I don't think that it's necessary to read the book first...

Much better than the previous one on the subject called "Wheat Belly".

Many would call these just fad diets and that's OK, but with this book i'm totally convinced.

It's still a good read even if you have no plans on changing your diet or what you eat.

 

It's funny how when i'm reading this alarms go off in my head and it's thinking.."nope, not healthy" or that it sounds risky.

It makes me wonder if i'm brainwashed/programmed somehow into thinking low-fat and high carb diets are best.

I always thought saturated fat and cholesterol was evil! Maybe not as much as we're told.

 

I've been a vegetarian for maybe 5-6 years now and am still a little overweight. I think perhaps it's too many refined carbs. I've tried to limit them but it's tough.

I definitely don't think animal protein makes people fat. Well, unless you eat out at KFC every night.

Just been revisiting my childhood with The Compleet Molesworth. Less than a fiver for the collected edition on Kindle and a joy forever.
