While I'm figuring out what to say about stained glass from Canterbury and Werner Herzog at the Getty (I have a good idea, but did you ever take notes in the dark during a film? Results not always super-legible), take a look at my friend Ted's blog, Bookeywookey
Frankly, extraordinary. I've always enjoyed it, but his year end lists of what he's read each year are mind-blowing. 45 - 50 books a year, while also getting a PhD. How do people do it? Really, I actually want to know.
Anyhow, I'm chipping away at the ones I've been chipping away at. Meanwhile, there's a great amount of ideas and recommendations awaiting you at Bookeywookey.
