new map

so i was browsing along thru the guardian the other day and i cam across this.

i'm now willing to accept that there are two types of people in the world - those who find it dull as dishwater and those others (like the occupants of my house) who are completely absorbed by it.

if you're one of the latter any further explanation is superfluous. if you're one of the former i can't explain it to you.

today it seems as if most of europe has bought a book before going to work. i get israel and malta for the first time. latin america remains quiet. i must go and do some work. in five minutes....

That map thing is a bit mind-blowing. And are there really people who find the world dull? Really? The whole world?

staggerly, yes there are. i just can't understand it.

no ukraine or belarus so far. and still the whole of latin america is a blank.

i'm claiming first dibs on this for something on the poetry bus!

Absorbing it is. The strange books people buy. Canny advertising. Next time I want a book I'll be tempted - just to see it pop up!

I've just noticed it repeats - presumably if it's a quiet time it just goes round and round.

it seems to go on a different cycle dependent on the time of day.

some odd titles tho and no good whatsoever for any compulsive behaviours i might have!

I never knew about this, and now I am going to be hooked! You *****! It's hard enough to get any work done as it is!
