A book cull has left the ratio of books owned vs books read in an embarrassing place. Nice paper ornaments packaged with knowledge that's absent from my brain.

The Penguin Great Ideas series is a collection of beautifully designed non-fiction books, inexpensive enough to accumulate over time when I spot one in a shop that I don't yet have drawn in by the clean cover designs.

On an average day I write more words than a I read. Another ratio to be ashamed of.
