Oh well, back to the grindstone today after two weeks or R&R - no, not a holiday, but recuperation after a minor operation. This week, I'll be back presenting on 18 Doughty Street every night at 10pm and I've also got three 1,000 word articles to write. One of them is for the House Magazine on the political books which are being published during the party conference season. The list I have compiled so far is pretty thin gruel. Fewer and fewer big political books seem to be published each autumn. Makes me glad I got out of bookselling when I did! Anyway, if you know of any books which I should consider mentioning in the article feel free to leave a comment.
As you may have noticed, I switched anonymous comments back on over the weekend, and was flooded with abusive and insulting comments as a result. I've now switched moderation on too, which doesn't mean I shall censor, but I'm just not going to allow this blog to be infested by idiots who think it's clever to troll around hurling abuse at me or anyone else.
