Plugging the gaps

Do you ever get that feeling that there is a gap in your reading? That moment when you think ‘hold on a minute I’ve missed that one’ and head out to try and plug the gap. Listening to a Guardian podcast where Philip Pullman was interviewed around Christmas time it dawned on me when he was admitting there were some references to Paradise Lost in his Northern Lights trilogy that I had no idea what he was talking about. After a couple of days it proved impossible to get it out of my head and so tonight I popped into Waterstones and picked up a copy of Milton’s most famous work.

There is a big difference of course between owning a book and actually reading it but at least step one has been completed…
