A Common Reader is . . .
. . . written by Tom Cunliffe, of East Sussex, England

It consists of book reviews and more general articles about reading and currently receives over 10,000 unique visitors each month. So far 299 book reviews have been published.

I live with my wife Margaret in East Sussex, having managed to return to God’s own county after many years in exile. A couple of years ago I managed to get early retirement after a lengthy career in I.T. and am now able to devote myself to many of my interests including reading, walking and playing the guitar and mandolin.  I retain a vestige of usefulness by running websites for a couple of local organisations and fixing computer problems for friends and family (a never-ending task!).

I have always been unable to live without books and for example, the thought of a train journey without a book to hand fills me with anxiety.  Some years ago I realised that by reading so many books I was actually forgetting most of them within a few weeks (or even days) of finishing them, so I started to write reviews, firstly for Amazon and then for my own website.

Having now retired from a career in which I ended up writing reports for government ministers and H.M. Treasury on the latest I.T. debacles it is a pleasure to be able to write about one of the things I love – books – without needing to submit the results to consultation, quality assurance and political correctness reviews.

I have written reviews of a few books by Gregor Von Rezzori and have brought them together with some biographical information .

I have become interested in the life of Jan Karski, a major figure in the Polish Resistance in World War 2. 

I have written a study guide to W G Sebald’s novel Austerlitz.

I live in the county of Sussex and publish reviews of books by or about writers who lived in the county such as Hillaire Belloc and Rudyard Kipling.

Walking the Hexagon – Terry Cudbird

In my last post I mentioned three books about men on extended walks. This time, rather than fiction, I am writing about a real-life walk, during which Terry Cudbird retired from work and decided to walk the coast of France, an epic journey by anyone’s standards. Just before his retirement, Terry was on holiday with his wife in the French Alps and told her that he would like to walk some of the Grand Randonées (the network of long-distance footpaths that cross the country in all directions). His wife must be either very tolerant or else wanted time on her own, for she replied, “why don’t you do it now, before you become decrepit”.

Idiomantics – Philip Gooden and Peter Lewis

I occasionally review books about language and the origin of words and was drawn to Idiomantics which has the subtitle, “The Weird World of Popular Phrases”. With a recommendation from Gyles Brandreth (host of the BBC radio show Wordaholics) I decided to read the book to see how it compared to the rest of my collection of “word” books. The book is similar in format to The Etymologicon by Mark Forsyth, which I featured late last year, and the book is equally entertaining. The phrases are arranged into 13 chapters with titles such as Corridors of Power, The Daily Grind and National Identity. Each phrase is covered by up to two or three pages describing the origin and use of the phrase phrase and the results are often surprising. A useful index is provided at the end and I found that quite most of the common phrases I could think of covered in it.

The Lower River – Paul Theroux

Its a long time since I read a new novel by Paul Theroux. Most of his more well-known books were written in the 1980s and 90s (see Wikipedia list here) and I remember them as being very high quality reading experiences although I found his later work less satisfying. his year we’ve got a new novel from Theroux, The Lower River, and I’m pleased to say its a welcome return to form. Some of Theroux’s novels are semi-autobiographical and when he writes about Africa, as he does in The Lower River, his writing has an authority born of personal experience. As a young man he joined the Peace Corps and went to teach in Malawi. After a controversial time there he moved to Uganda and taught at Makere University where he began a long-term friendship and working friendship with V S Naipul, with whom he had a much publicised falling-out when Theroux published his book Sir Vidia’s Shadow in 1998.

Book Review: The Immortalists by Chloe Benjamin

The Immortalists is a book which talks about the sorrow which every human has to face and how everyone deals with it. The book is published in the year 2018, and this book tells the story of four children Varya who is a careful pragmatist, Daniel the moral leader, Klara the magic lover and Simon the reserved one. These four kids hear rumblings in the neighbourhood about a woman who can tell the fortune of people, and she also could tell the exact dates in which people would die. The four children become curious and decide to meet this woman to learn more about their fortune and their death date.

The four kids set out on a journey to find this woman, and when they eventually find out where she is, they go and meet her individually in a small room. Now you wouldn’t be told what they death date is going to be but as you continue to read you will come to know when each of them will meet their death. All this happens at the very beginning of the book, and the remaining of the book is dedicated to following the four children through decades, and as these death dates get closer and finally comes, you will get to know if the woman was actually right.

Haze in the Synopsis:

When you read the synopsis of the book, it brings out a hint of magical reality, and you tend to think that there is something supernatural about this story. But once you read the book, you will understand that that is not the case in this novel. The Immortalists is straight literary fiction, you cannot say that the book lacks paranormal activities, but this book is a classic haze of publisher covering up a book to be something that it is not to make it appear fancy. Many readers might get disappointed by this as they get misled into thinking that this is a magical reality book.

Message:

The author tries to ask questions such as by knowing the future of your life; will you alter the behaviour of your present? and should we know the information of our death dates and what would that knowledge do to us; will it have the capacity to save us or kill us while we are still living. The author makes her readers think about all these things, and all of these questions are quite deep.

You cannot expect too much mystery in the story. As you read the book, you will kind of predict what is going to happen and not many readers would like to know what exactly is going to happen before they finish reading the book. But the characters of the book are amazing, and as you get to know about them and the journey, they take you will understand the message that author is trying to tell you.

Benefits of Reading: Why You Should Read Every Day

Reading is a brilliant habit which most of us need to build. Every book and article has something in it, and when you read, your imagination grows. As technology got in the way, many people are glued to their phones and we often find ourselves on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.

There are many studies which show that diseases like Alzheimer’s and Dementia can be prevented when people get mentally simulated. When you kept your brain active and occupied with things, you will not be losing the power of thinking, and just like the other muscles in the body your brain also needs constant exercise for it to be up and running.

Relieves Stress:

No matter how stressed you are, you can always come home to a book and immerse yourself in another world where all your stress will be gone. A great book makes you forget all the pressure you faced that day, and a well-written article will make you think deep and make you feel relaxed.

Knowledge:

Reading is one of the best ways to improve your knowledge. Books are filled with information, and you will never know when a particular piece of information will come in handy. You might have noticed that people who read more happen to be brilliant and they tend to tackle challenges very easily. Knowledge is wealth which can never be plucked away from you and so keep reading and develop your knowledge.

Building your Vocabulary:

You might read a book or article in any language. Whichever language you are reading, you tend to learn the grammar of that language as you will be reading how each sentence is constructed. You don’t have to sit and learn your vocabulary for a particular language specifically; all you have to do is take a book and start reading. As time goes by you will become proficient in speaking and talking in that language.

Improves your Memory:

While reading you have to remember the plot of the story and all the characters in the book, and thus your brain starts to memorise them, and your memory will be improved without you even trying.

Analytical and thinking skills:

If you have ever read a good mystery novel or a thriller novel you would understand how the author would make you think what the end of the story might be; when you read stories like these, your brain starts to work, and you will be able to solve puzzles better.

Focus and concentration:

When you sit down to read all your attention and focus must be on the book you are reading; this might be hard in the initial stages but as you continue to read you will start to focus and improve your concentration.

Dermal Filler – Facts And Fictions

Dermal fillers happen to be used commonly in Australia for many, many years now and many have at least read about the very popular ones like https://skinclub.com.au. Mainly they’re used to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines to restore a young more refreshed appearance. There appears to be a great deal of false information that involve them in regards to what is possible, what is not likely, side effects, cost and an entire host of many other problems. In this fact or perhaps fiction session I will protect the misinformation and right the history for you.

Background on Dermal Fillers & Why Usage Has Increased

Dermal filler injections have taken off and their use continues to grow mainly as a result of the appearance of the medispa. Medispas are these mini small medical methods focused on beauty. You have probably seen them as they’re now on each alternate street corner all over the US. They provide the quality care and knowledge of any doctor’s office through the design, deluxe and pampering only offered in your hip boutique spa. It is the ideal merger of luxury and medicine.

Since the medispa is now increasingly prolific, the use of dermal fillers has raised tremendously. Everyone is booking appointments at medispas attempting to determine what antiaging cure works best for them and they’re learning more and about dermal fillers.

Fiction or fact

Probably the most frequent type of misinformation I learn about them would be that they are able to “turn back the clock” on the process of aging. While they will help you look a bit much more refreshed it is just not true. In case you expect them making you appear ten years young you’re setting yourself up for a terrible consequence. You might wind up eating a lot of Juvederm or maybe too much Botox since you believe will get the desired result but in the long run, you’ll look overdone and you will not like the result. Simply understand that dermal fillers aren’t miracle solutions, they simply enable you to are like a much more refreshed you.

Individuals also often believe you’ve been saddled with a massive needle for getting those plumped up more volume or lips into hollowed out aspects of your face. This is not true either due to the creation of the microcannula. A microcannula is able to restrict the total amount of pain and bruising and it is hardly felt when used correctly.

A hot topic generally brought up about dermal filler injections will be the price. My final truth or perhaps fiction is, unfortunately, to verify the point that the price for having Juvederm or perhaps some other dermal filler will differ significantly based on who you choose performing the process. Anaesthetic nurse or perhaps PA will charge much less than a medical doctor or perhaps dermatologist. Somebody who specializes in doing the method is going to ask for more payment than a person who does not. Injection methods as well as an artistic eye matter considerably in this process. The individual doing the effort should have an artful eye, a constant hand and be learning the most recent injection techniques. The best of the top will not give you any bruises, is painless and the end result will seem completely natural but yet provide you with a totally refreshed appearance. Expect to pay much more for that individual.

Short Effective Workouts

Nearly all folks believe that for a workout to work it’s to belong. That’s not always accurate. In lots of instances, a brief exercise session is equally as highly effective, in case not more successful, than a very long workout. There’s never a requirement to invest many hours sweating away in the fitness center. You are able to do effective short workouts but still reach your health goals.

The primary key to Effective Short Workouts

A short exercise needs to have particular attributes in case you need it to be as helpful as a more workout. For a short exercise to be effective it has to be extreme. This’s the key that will get your body truly burning calories and fat. You don’t need to kill yourself, however.

Frequently when folks hear the term intense they believe it implies pushing themselves until they are able to hardly move. This’s actually going crazy. You do wish to provide your body a true exercise and get your blood pumping, but clicking way too hard can result in pain and do a lot more damage than good. The secret here’s balance.

With shorter workouts, each minute must count. You have to be operating at your main level. That means you’re truly focused and every move you are making is serving a job. You cannot simply just “get through” a brief exercise. You’ve to really be contemplating just how your body is functioning and how your entire body is benefiting from the workouts you’re doing.

Short Workout Tips

Allow me to share a couple suggestions that to help you ensure your brief workouts are just as helpful as your extended workout routines.

Ensure you’re pushing yourself through the entire workout. Always keep raising the intensity level each workout. Experiment with utilizing a pulse rate monitor to make sure you’re getting your heart rate in place during your exercise routine.

Vary your exercise routine. Doing various exercises prevents yourself from setting to the workouts and also will keep it guessing. In case you do the same day your body is going to adjust and you’ll need to work longer and harder getting benefits from it.

Use the 21 day fix schedule. This type of workout is quite helpful for beginners and advanced workout classes. A 21 day fix review from various health websites says that this workout not only tones muscle and cardio but also helps you lose a lot of weight as well.

Stay focused through the entire exercise. Ensure you’re centered on form as well as on doing the exercise properly. The form that is good is crucial for actually getting the most from a workout move.

Do strength training, also. Building muscle will help your body burn far more calories and also makes losing weight or even maintaining weight easier. The more muscle you’ve, the less time you’ve to exercise to get a great calorie burn.

Any physical fitness specialist is going to tell you it’s definitely not how long your workout that is important. The real test of any workouts effectiveness will be the intensity. Try giving it your all for twenty minutes and you’ll be doing as much great for your health as you’d in case you are just giving fifty % in one-hour long exercise. And so, forget about the hour-long workouts and also try intensive short workouts for a genuine change within your body.

Vlogging – Advanced Affiliate Marketing On Your Blogs

Vlogging and video blogging is fairly new online and almost rarely used by the vast majority of online marketing companies up to now. This’s a shame since we are living in a video-oriented society and also because a video is able to go a very long way towards demonstrating your niche knowledge and warming up your affiliate advertising prospects before delivering them off to the merchants’ sales pages via your affiliate marketing links.

Regardless of what video type you are using – live action video clip, screen capture video or maybe text composite video – editing is now as easy as every other click-and-drag process, along with computers nowadays generally has the faster processors and big hard drives needed for video rendering. Video editing software program generally includes comprehensive help files, which makes it easy and quick to grasp those areas of the editing process important to create your online marketing videos.

And embedding these movies on your blog is additionally a snap nowadays, working with either the plugins offered for vlogging purposes and through the vlogging widgets supplied by the clip hosting sites as YouTube, Viddler and also Yahoo Video, to name only a couple of. While either strategy works, online marketing pros have a tendency to lean towards the latter, as your video blogging attempts are able to have multiplied results by simultaneously uploading your video clips to the sites to make use of the large audiences.

The completed resolution of your respective videos will count in big part on the blogging design you are using, as they clearly have to install the posting region of your blog. For probably the most part, keep your video blogging on the typical ratio utilized by regular films and TV, 4:3 breadth to level. For instance, in case you are vlogging in a location that is 400 pixels wide, render your video clip 400 pixels great by 300 pixels tall. Just Read this to make sure you got the right video camera for your vlogs.

Stay away from going with the HD widescreen formatting ratio of 16:9, since the narrower vlogging location is going to mean your movies don’t have a lot of levels; in the example provided above your 300 pixel level will go down to 225 pixels in HD widescreen format, providing you with twenty-five % less location in your movies.

in case you are simply using your movies for video blogging, pick either the.WMV or.FLV platforms for your finished work, however, if you are also uploading these video clips to the sites you will wish to make use of either.WMV or perhaps.MP4 formats. Determine ahead of time what plugins you will make use of for your vlogging and what video sites you will be going with and search for the typical formats that work together with all of them. You are able to often re-render your movies for each use, but why use up much more of your time than needed? Streamline the procedure by picking a video recording format that is typical for your video blogging and also video advertising programs, then stick with the victor!
