If I have studied the entrails of this pelican correctly, and if scholars are correct in that the Seal of Baal-Ashtoreth has finally split in twain, that means it is my birthday. I am, by all reports, “no longer young,” but also, “not quite old,” which means I’m “middle-aged.”
I’ll buy my sports car next year.
For this year, I’ll buy myself a book.
Because books and birthdays go together like chocolate and more chocolate.
So: recommend to me a book you liked that you read recently.
Please do not recommend your own books because this is not that time.
