About bennysbooksetc.

This is where I write about the books, films, food, places, faces and anything else that takes my fancy. But mostly books because I fancy books the most.

On any given day I’ll watch a film, read a book, go to a pub, eat some food (everyday, that one) or take the hound out for a walk somewhere new. (Ted’s his name – you’ll hear more from him) They’re the themes of this blog: books, films, food and drink. And maybe some others that I haven’t thought of yet.

I’ve been reading two or three books a week on my commute to work for quite a while now and that’s really why I started this blog. I love books and I love giving someone a great recommendation, but I’ve got a bad memory. Hopefully, writing them down as I go will help me remember all those good reads that have helped me through my often painful bus journey to work in the wee small hours.

So, if I’m updating this blog everyday, you know I’ve been doing something. If it’s been a few weeks of cybersleep, then I’m probably sitting at home doing bugger all. Or I’m having too much fun to bother with it. Or maybe I’m reading War and Peace.

I’ve got high hopes that I’ll be posting at least once a week but I’m easily distracted, so let’s just see how it goes…

Oh, and here’s a bit about me:

I live and work in London.

I’m married.

I have a dog called Ted.

  1. Delighted to be intro’d to Riopelle. Impressed by your prolific beginnings. And your management of our expectations… Question: Can one review one’s own art? If so, please do. Thank you.

    • Ha! I wonder how the review might go…’Unappreciated Genius’ as a title, perhaps. Far too terrifying to post about my paintings – much prefer analysing other people’s work! Maybe a little further down the line, when I’ve got a few more posts under my belt…When I do, I’ll let you know, or i’ll just send you a few pictures- far less scary!

  2. Loving the blog Benny, especially the art posts. Waiting for extracts from Jemima Nobsworthy’s latest novel…… 🙂

  3. Some of this new art work is amazing. Like it a lot.

    It’s a shame I can’t read though, some of these books look very interesting.
