My box of books arrived today from America. It's the new paperback edition of the first Jimmy Coates book.
I've spent plenty of time today playing with the packaging (building, folding, popping bubble-wrap etc.) and now I'm going to build a fort in my living room out of all the books. A literary world where I can hide away. If it's big enough, I might write in there. But it would have to have room for all my snacks.
You know what, I've just realised - paperbacks aren't going to be as good for building as the hardbacks were. Hmmm... might have to dig out my copies of the hardback edition to put down a foundation.
Now, I don't want to give the impression that all I do with books is build with them. You can read them as well, you know. But if you have about 25 copies of the same book, you only need to read one of the copies.
This is all a roundabout and rather un-cunning way of saying that you should get your own copy (or 25) and read it, then build with it, and recommend it to a friend.
