Reading, Writing, Arithmetic #1

So my site, or at least a few pieces in particular, has been mentioned in a couple of great sites which, more than anything else, is a real ego boost as a writer and very much appreciated admiration of my work. I am very supportive of other bloggers, writers, film-makers and the rest, and some of you will know I often share, retweet, comment on your posts. I have been thinking about linking to the tons of articles, reviews, lists etc that I read daily, so decided to go right ahead and do that on the back of this attention my site has been giving. Share the love and all that.


There will be no set date, or any particular type of media, to what I refer to here. I’ll likely just link to the stuff I enjoyed reading / watching / studying the most and post away.

The title comes from the first album by The Sundays, which is 25 years old this month, and thought it could be interpreted appropriately here.
