Reading - December 2014

The Week (6 December 2014 / Issue 1000)
Off-Message by Matthew Parris (2001)
Bitter and jaundiced, but in a good way.
The Week (13 December 2014 / Issue 1001)
Guitarist (January 2015 / Issue 389)
The Attack Of The Unsinkable Rubber Ducks by Christopher Brookmyre (2007)
The usual jolly good Christopher Brookmyre fun (as opposed to the dull "Chris" Brookmyre books). Hadn't re-read it for a while - not sure why.
The Week (20 December 2014 / Issue 1002)
The Education Of Hyman Kaplan by Leo Rosten (1937)
Amazingly timeless, somehow. Not that I know, but I wouldn't be surprised if similar scenes play themselves out even today. Just as charming as its sequel (which I know better). And thanks to my Dad for getting it for me!
Build Your Own Electric Guitar by Paul Balmer (2013)
Just wondering what electric guitar-related project to do next, so re-reading this. I still find it incredibly annoying that it refers to "S-type" guitars throughout, but otherwise it's a useful resource.
