Bride of the Book God

I'm exactly the same, I head off with really good intentions and a nice pile of books and manage to get completely sidetracked. I'm never sure how it happens.... But this October will be different I'm sure (fingers crossed)

I do read a lot on holiday, usually an average of a book a day, but I am not a spouse or parent! I can afford to be utterly selfish on holiday...


I read three books this holiday, in Switzerland.There was plenty of time in the evening after a days sight-seeing.Many years ago I listened to Mary Webb's ''Precious Bane'' on the radio and have meant to read it for ages. Now I have - and enjoyed it once I got used to the Shropshire dialect.
The it was Alan Bennett's ''An Uncommon Reader'' which amused me greatly. Lastly, another book I've been meaning to read for so long - ''The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists'' - Robert Tressell. This was lengthy and serious for the most part and, although it hasn't changed my life as many people seem to have experienced,partly, I suppose, because the ideas expressed are akin to my own, but, it certainly made me think and each day something occurs which makes me hark back to the book.
