Anyone read this one? if so, thumbs up or down?
I can't decide whether to give it a go or not.

I haven't come across this one before T, though it looks like a good tip for a winter solstice/xmas pressie. I quite like the play on the word 'Wonderings' (I wonder as I wander). I get that.
Certainly looks worth taking a chance on.

Just finished reading this one. Really liked it and worth picking up I think.
I liked the way he writes about sites. Made me want to go a wondering and wandering myself. His love of old stuff comes through as well as his addiction to cups of tea (hardly goes a page without one!)

Wonder if he saw it in its original place. Will have to buy.

Just ordered it, he must also be a musician drinking vast amounts of tea :-)
