    “Good Omens”, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

    I’ve watched the series (6 episodes) on Amazon Prime, and found it quite funny. I expect the book to be better.

    To Calais, In Ordinary Time - James Meek

    Written in a mixture of dialects of the Middle Ages, which makes quite an interesting challenge besides being an interesting book to read.

    From 'Goodreads'
    --------
    Three journeys. One road.

    England, 1348. A gentlewoman is fleeing an odious arranged marriage, a Scottish proctor is returning home to Avignon and a handsome young ploughman in search of adventure is on his way to volunteer with a company of archers. All come together on the road to Calais.

    Coming in their direction from across the Channel is the Black Death, the plague that will wipe out half of the population of Northern Europe. As the journey unfolds, overshadowed by the archers' past misdeeds and clerical warnings of the imminent end of the world, the wayfarers must confront the nature of their loves and desires.

    A tremendous feat of language and empathy, it summons a medieval world that is at once uncannily plausible, utterly alien and eerily reflective of our own. James Meek's extraordinary To Calais, In Ordinary Time is a novel about love, class, faith, loss, gender and desire—set against one of the biggest cataclysms of human history.

    as the line goes... ‘and now for something completely different’!

    The Life of Pee by Sally Magnusson. A serious but amusing book about pee (urine!)

    Did you know about the app RunPee? From a database it tells you the best time to rake a loo break in a long movie, so as not to miss the best scenes. (Look in the App store if you do not believe me.)
