The Horologicon by Mark Forsyth

As my credit card provider announced a downward revision in encashment policy on points, I scrambled to make the most of accumulated points by buying the above book, driven by a nice extract in the Guardian, last year.

The search to find something that fit my budget was painful to say the least, given Landmark's increasingly terrible state of affairs. The knowledge of online bookstores selling the same books for at least 25% less was an added burden. Eventually, I just gave up and bought chocolates with the remaining amount, rather the kill myself in the search for a good book to make up the 3 in the 3 for 2 offer :)
