Further reading and drinking

The post on booze in books sparked so many suggestions that I was going to do a new post on the same subject. There is, however, already a rather good blog devoted to just this topic called 120units so I’ll have to think of something else to write about. Maybe I’ll resurrect the moribund Wine of the Week slot. Watch this space.

    There’s also lots of booze in Freedom by Jonathan Franzen, which I’m reading at the moment. But I guess I’ll have to tell the other blogger bloke 😦

    PS. Loved the shout-out in last week’s blog post. I LOLed.

    Thank you for the link. I loved your post on booze in books and have got plenty of good suggestions from it.

    @Philippa, I’ve got a copy of Freedom lurking about the house somewhere, now I have the perfect reason to read it. I’ve been meaning to get round to picking out a couple of references from The Corrections too, as parts of that are liberally soaked in alcohol…
