Books, Books, Books

I am such an avid reader. I love reading, and I love books. I am a step away from being surgically attached to my Kindle, which is filled with all manner of literature, as it is impossible to lug around over 200 books with me on a day to day basis.

But, when I'm engaged in research, I much prefer having a hard-copy, old-fashioned, traditional book to read.


My current favourite is 'State Of The Nation' by Michael Billington. I've been reading it voraciously since I bought it, and scribbling frantic notes in the margins of every page. I'm also particularly grateful to the blank pages at the back of the book, which I am beginning to fill with longer notes that wouldn't have fit down the edges of the writing!

 


It's really helping me crystallise my thinking on how Theatre responds to Crisis; I can tell it's going to be one of my most referenced texts going forward!
