So One Day continues to sell obscenely well, once again topping the UK charts. I almost picked up a copy the other day, but a colleague quickly distracted me by shoving a volume much older and dustier under my nose. I really can't imagine quite why so many people are buying Alistair Campbell's book, - I'm quite sure I've got better things to do with my time than read about dusty, old politics from the point of view of someone who is hardly the most flamboyant of the Westminster mob. At number seven, just below the politico memoirs, is Richard Dawkins's latest effort. I've already set this aside as one of my books to read for October, mainly because it has lots of pictures, but also because it looks surprisingly upbeat for Richard "You can't possibly believe that, you utter plebian" Dawkins. Couple of cook books, sadly no interest for me there bar salivating over the photos, inevitably creeping into the top ten on the back of the recently released film, and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Of Mice and Men - no idea why that's popular this month, new GCSE students picking it up maybe - any ideas, what have I missed?
