Soporific Reads returns!

Pickle Me This devotees will be glad to see the return of an old favourite feature. Last year I worked at the library in the afternoons and kept track of books clutched by snoring undergraduates. This year I work the morning shift and there are far fewer sleepers (I suspect they stay in bed instead) but today I spotted one!

The first soporific read in ages: a young girl dreaming away to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Third in a Series

Isn’t political science soporific! Today a book called “Great Powers and the European State System” is putting the kids to sleep. It did look a bit dry.
