These are the select few books that I have so far carted to Leeds.

I finished my diary (it ran out of pages). That's five and a half years
of stuff (that I probably shouldn't bother reading ever again).

I keep a journal, I go through phases of using it then I put it down for a while. I tend to stick things that I find in it rather than writing to much.

Steve says:

Oh, your writing is much prettier than mine

Helen says:

I am the same with mine. I keep clippings, write down extracts I like. I think my new one will be more commonplace book than diary, but I am yet to find out.

So it's like a blog, but on paper?

Weird...

Ach go on, read 'em again, they're always good for a giggle. Things that seemed so important at the time really don't matter anymore :)

I have a journal that goes back to about the age of 12. That's pretty bad.

I burnt another of my diaries.

Steve says:

Nooooooo that is so wrong! even if you hate it dont destroy it. Seal it and keep it locked away, but never destroy it

Helen says:

I ripped some pages out and stuck them in my other diary.

I used to put my concert tickets in my diary too. I threw it out on monday. Very bad memories.

That is just regret waiting to happen

I think it's good to throw stuff away sometimes. Even very personal stuff. I threw out lots of personal mementoes a year or so back, including pen letters. Once or twice I felt like checking them, but no I don't need all that stuff anymore.

Stuff that other people send you... fine bin it.... stuff that you thought important enough to catalouge, keep it. it shows you how you have grown, or changed.

Hmm ... famous author, no 1; claims she burns her work ... famous author no 2; keeps all her work "there is always something to retrieve/salvage"

Look out for a parcel ... may be good timing ... (or good kindling)

And what do you think of "The Accidental"?
Booker prize winning?

Helen says:

I like to hit the middle ground.

I haven't read most of the books on this shelf yet, as I decided to bring mostly unread books, so that I might read them. I'm saving "The Accidental" for when I can dedicate a long reading stretch to it.

I shall keep an eye on the post : )
