Last minute presents
Well actually, if you haven’t got your presents you may be too late. But if the exact date of delivery does not matter to you, let me follow up a suggestion I made around this time last year that you might like to consider giving your friend or loved one an eccentric book.
Here are three I would particularly recommend:
A Popular History of British Seaweeds (I love the adjective ‘popular’)
A Lust for Window Sills (come on, admit it)
How to Teach Physics to your Dog (well, I’m an academic and I have a dog: must be useful…)
