Day five in the library. (Where have I heard this before?) This time it’s in the good old Warwick library on Library Road. If I come in during the morning, it’s still not too busy. I find my way to the same spot as usual – after all, we are creatures of habit. I can see that I’m right by the covers of certain books that are now becoming my dissertation companions by simply sitting on the shelf where they always sit: Norman Davies, God’s Playground. Another book called Inside Putin’s Russia. “Everything as a political biography should be”, praises the Sunday Times right above the title. See, when I read something like that, my reflex thought will be: “If everything is as it should be, then it can’t be a good book.” Of course I can, but that’s the kind of thought such a slick comment provokes with me. DK 441.H2 – DR 701.S55, that’s where I am and will be for the coming days. Luckily, the library will close for Easter in a few days, that’ll push me to get some more work done.
And on that note, time to get on with it. Have a productive day.
