Popped in today to Waterstone's local branch, looking for some inspiration for my blog.
Dambisa Moyo has a couple of books prominently displayed. Winner take all - about China's quest for dominance of global resources. Dominance is not a word I associate with the Chinese personality. Amibitious, yes, but dominant, no. But seems an interesting read, penned by the journalist who is billed as one of the 100 most influential women in the world. Words have an impact, I guess. I look forward to reading Miss Moyo's books.
Actual paper-and-cardboard books are a joy to handle. Kindle versions are cheaper, but I cannot afford the eye-strain.
Anyway, I picked up one book on Maths, and saw a free Preview booklet of Terry Pratchett's Dodger.
Amusing and entertaining, it seems, and nice pictures to refresh the eyes.
