What’s this all about?

Hi. I’m Nicholas Whyte, a public affairs consultant in Brussels, political commentator in Northern Ireland, and science fiction fan. This is my blog on WordPress, which replaced my Livejournal in March 2022.

Since late 2003, I’ve been recording (almost) every book that I have read; I read a lot (in non-plague times, I have a long commute) and wanted to keep a good note of what I read. At 200-300 books a year, that’s over 4000 books that I have written up here. (These are the most recent.)

As the twentieth anniversary of my bookblogging comes closer, I’ve also been revisiting each month of reviews every six days or so, so you’ll see some less recent reviews mentioned.

As well as books, I have been going through the films that won the Oscar for Best Picture in sequence and the films that won the Hugo or Nebula for Best Dramatic Presentation or equivalent.

And during the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve been trying to keep discipline and write something about it every ten days.

Also used for occasional commentary on other stuff, but you’ll find my Facebook and Twitter are more live.

Comments welcome, though sometimes quicker to email me at nicholas dot whyte at gmail dot com.

    Yes, I’ve been a livejournal voyeur for too long; time to take the plunge.

    Gaiman claims to have enjoyed the Brussels signing in his blog. Noticeable that about half the people in the queue were locals and half native English speakers.
