I really love my monthly book club. They are smarty, witty people. But it is starting to dawn on me that their literary aspirations are more worthy than mine.

I currently have four books on the go. One of which is Possession by AS Byatt. But possess me it does not. Instead I seek sanctuary in Me Before You by Jo Jo Moyes, a weepy romance. Sure it includes a visit to a dignitas clinic in Switzerland but Possession with it’s tautly contained letters between socially awkward Victorians is on a whole different level.

Sigh. Got till late Jan to read it. We’ll see.

Ah. There is someone listening out there. Radio 4 are playing a great adaptation of Possession over the last week and next. Will make up for all those pages (poems) I have skipped.
