:: Monstrous tasks

Not content with slogging through Churchill's magnum-opus (or as Baldrick would say, his magnificent octopus), The History of World War II in six doorstoppy volumes (plus vast numbers of appendices -- weighs almost as much as the man himself), I've also started re-reading Stephen King's seven-volume Dark Tower series. I really must be some kind of glutton for punishment. At least there's no possibility of getting the plots confused, what with the crazy evil dude who wants to destroy the world in one, and the crazy evil dude who wants...hmmm.

I'd forgotten that so little happens in The Gunslinger. However, things are hopping on the other front: Hitler has finally invaded Poland, the Royal Oak has been sunk in Scapa Flow, and Winston takes every opportunity to remind us that the valiant British will always rise up to defeat tyranny and fight for freedom no matter the cost (cue bugles and a jolly jack tar singing Heart of Oak). Bold words from a short fat man with a cigar.

Ooh! Must share this hilarious website I discovered recently: Judge a Book by its Cover, a collection of "truly hideous book covers" with humorous commentary. Fave so far is this one -- "... and somewhere, a letter "L" runs free ..." bwahahahaaaa!
