It took me a while to realise that just because I'd started reading a book, I had no obligation to finish it.

Also, you can sign up to receive it daily as an RSS or email.
thank you, this is such a find! I note it says

The diary entries were published on this site daily, in real time, from January 2003 until May 2012, with readers discussing events each day. From January 2013 the diary entries will again appear on the front page at the end of the day (London time), starting with 1 January 1660.
but all previous discussions are still there.

Perhaps a platitude, but though I know it, whenever I come across it, it always strikes me how writings roughly up to the 20th century are peppered with observations about health.
