A Blog Post In Tesco.

I've noticed something about my blogging, I do most of it in tesco. I wonder why?

A good thing has happened since my last post, (the story one) I have finally got insurance on my car. I am a free man.

The world is open for business, but I have no idea what to do first, I don't mean career, that sorted out, in a few months time I will be at the bottom of a ladder that I want to climb, rather then halfway up one I don't want to climb. What I mean is sitting in the house is boring, I want to do something now, something that is worth me filling up my tank.

Below is an image of my now organised bookcase.


  1. What books do you read? I think I spotted a book named "Wonders of the Universe"? Or am I totally off track? I love to read about the universe. I actually have that book myself.

    1. You just hit the bullseye, Wonders of the Universe is there, it's the second one. Next to it (left) is Wonders of the Solar System, on the other side (right) is Wonders of Life, which I'm half way through.

      Next to the wonders collection is Why Does E=MC2? by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw.

      Then I've got In Seach of Schrodingers Cat by John Gribbin, A Breif Histroy Of Time by Stephen Hawking. Next to that is Higgs Discovery: The Power Of Empty Space by Lisa Randall, it's a great introduction to the Higgs Boson and the Higgs Field, it takes a little bit of getting your head around but I would really recommend it.

      Finally I have What Is Life by the man himself Erwin Schrodinger. The day after I took that photo I brought The Sky At Night by the late great Patrick Moore and Chirs North.

      The middle shelf has Jack Dee, Derren Brown, Mock The Week, QI and Jeremy Clarkson.

      The top shelf has The Office series two scripts, The Fault In Our Stars by John Green, which I have to say is the best book that I have ever read, it had me gripped, I did not want it to end and its the first book that I read that has made me cry. Smooching with John Green is J.K.Rowling with The Casual Vacancy and then the entire Harry Potter Collecton. Next to Potter is four Shakespeare plays; Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Henry V. ( I always saw myself as a but of an unlikly hero) and to round it all off I've got The Hobbit.

      I really want to grow my library some more, are there any books that you would recommend?

  2. Wow, that's quite a library you've got there. I recongnize a few of them, like the one by Stephen Hawking. I like his TV-serie called "Stephen Hawkings Universe". If you haven't already seen it I really recommend it. He covers some very interesting topic, among them the possibility of alien life. Really worth the watch.

    Brian Cox really has understood the concept of making science easy and accessible to everyone. I could listen to him talk for hours!

    Maybe you've heard of Michio Kaku? He is one of my favorite theoretical physicists. He has got a lot of knowledge about physics and the universe itself, and is really good at explaining it. He has got a book called "Physics of the impossible". A great book!

    Another great book I would recommend is "A users's guide to the universe" by Dave Goldberg and Jeff Blomquist. They explain physics in a fun and simple way. They also cover some intriguing questions like what happens if you fall into a black hole, is there a multiverse etc. etc.

    At the moment I'm reading a book called "Why don't spiders stick to their webs?" by Robert Matthews. It's a fun book which answers a lot of everyday mysteries like why can't we tickle ourself, do you get wetter if you run or walk in the rain.. stuff like that :)
    It's a real source of inspiration to my blog where can I ask the same questions and find the answers in his book.

    1. I've seen a few episodes of Stephen Hawking Universe, it's clear that he hasn't let suffering from motor neurone disease get in his way, he currently lives a much more fuller life then I do, and he is a inspiration to me.

      I will openly admit that I'm a Brian Cox fan-boy, he was born eight miles from me, and I even have a green shirt just like the one he wore he filmed Wonders Of Life (he must shop at M&S too, or I stalk him)

      I find Michio Kaku to be one of the most fascinating people alive. I could have used him when I studying for my GCSE's. I've never had a chance to read any of his books. He's on the 'to read' list. I love how he can think on a huge scale, (and he got my head around string theory in 5 minuets)

      I've never heard of 'A users guide to the universe' but with a title like that it seems awesome.

      There is so much that I haven't read, 'Why do spider stick to webs' is one of them.

      Thank you so much for the recommendations.
