Robinson Crusoe sneezes
Oh, yes - so here it is. The slight mock cold I've had for a few days is now a full-blown one with all the lovely accoutrements - flowing nose, sore throat, sneezes, general fed-up-ness. I've been comforting myself with - what? - Robinson Crusoe, a book I've never read - has anyone read it, these days? - and it's actually extremely readable, sometimes funny, a little over-religious for one's twentieth century taste -It goes to show, I suppose, that few books whose title at least has survived for a couple of centuries is likely not to be at least interesting. And in fact, on a desert island is where I should be, at present.
