Today I have read the programme of performances for the winter season at the Sam Wannamaker playhouse, which is the Globe's indoor theatre.

Also much twitter.

I read the labels that listed the empanada fillings at a stall on Borough Market, to stock up before the play.

Lots of spreadsheets and technical documents. The Economist "Espresso". Some Guardian articles. A bit of the most recent issue of Private Eye (in the bath).

I'm reading The Stone Sky by NK Jemisin. It's fantastic.

Half a King (Joe Abercrombie) -- mildly disabled younger son accidentally becomes king on the death of his father and older brother, is betrayed, has to survive. The disability is a malformation of the hand; it is relevant to the story, but this is not inspiration porn. Well written, good world building, interesting (and varied) characters, and yet I was a bit bored. Highly recommended for those who like quest/high fantasy, or those who want a quiet afternoon.

Thanks for this; have downloaded a sample since it sounds like good dropping-off-to-sleep reading.

Yes, I think it would work for dropping-off-to-sleep reading, the story flows logically, and was easy to follow in increments (plus, written in set pieces, as so much high fantasy is).
