October 2010

It’s October and the start of Michaelmas term proper this week. Which means that all kinds of lectures, seminars a
nd similar gatherings which I am looking forward to are starting again. Autumn is my favourite time of year and the thrills of new pencils, notepads and books delights me just as much now as they did when I first went to university. Last week’s crop of Oxford’s charity book shops included Flaubert’sSentimental Education, Love in Cold Climate by Nancy Mitford and Jenny Uglow’s A Little History of British Gardening. New reading matter in hand I say “autumn, here I come”. 
N.B. Book reviews to follow… .
