Thank goodness the summer holidays are coming so I should be able to get through a few of these, right? Umm, well, the kids and grandkids are here for the first week, and I am not reading while I’ve got gorgeous wee ones to spoil and have fun with.
Week two close friends are coming to stay. Great, the guys get to go fishing while my girlfriend and I – well, we talk and drink the odd wine or three. We do not read, because my friend, love her to bits, does not read even a paper or magazine, let alone a book. Phew, thank goodness for the third week. Another close friend and her partner are coming, and she and I will fritter away the hours talking, reading, and talking. Oh, and we get creative in the kitchen too.
To add to my reading woes I joined a book group last month after a long time of not doing this. So of course I came home with a small pile, didn’t I? I managed to read The Lost Mona Lisa by RA Scott – absolutely fascinating and great insight into the art world and the crooks of the time. I also read The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. Another great read and this one kept me turning pages when I should’ve been doing other things.
What have you read lately that’s kept you away from less important things?
