“The Rise of the Ultra Runners” by Adharanand Finn, great book about, you guessed it, ultra-running, through the author’s own personal experience. I really enjoy his factual, yet fast-moving and humorous style.

Also, while on holiday in Greece last week, I finally got around to reading the compelling, absorbing, brilliant and utterly shameful “Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee” by Dee Brown.

No Martin, too lazy/knackered for that sort of malarkey, although l was once asked to co-author one.
Haven't been doing much that would be of any interest here and not really worn any denim the last 6 weeks or so as it's been too warm here.

So hence the brief absence 🔥

I thought you’d actually been away, writing your own book Charlie!

Bit of a best seller but Sapiens has been a good read/ nice reminder of our short time here.

Been on a Wendell Berry kick lately, mostly his essays and poetry. His collection 
"Sex, Economy, Freedom, and Community" has had a quiet but solid effect on me.

thumbs up to geert! his 'networks without a cause' is also good...

on related tangent... james bridle also worth checking out - his essay on kid's youtube and automation of content is quite disturbing...

and of course the inimitable invisible committee's excellently titled 'fuck off google' is worth a read for the title alone... https://www.anonymous-france.eu/IMG/pdf/the-invisible-committee-fuck-off-google.pdf

Just started Geert Lovink's 'Social Media Abyss' thanks to a sloganeering poster/sticker campaign around my work locale

I’d say large print is the right section for you these days
