Reading on the Road

The last few weeks have been a blur. I spent a couple of character-building weeks under canvas running knitting workshops in an arts festival in West Wales. It rained, then it rained some more. The relentless wet weather was punctuated by high winds and while confined to my tent I invented forty different words for mud. Still, I got a lot of reading done. This little lot are now waiting to be reviewed, and I may have to resort to a few posts with multiple mini overviews.

I’d finally transformed my mud-encrusted clothing mountain to normality when my son arrived home after his three months stint at sea with the merchant navy – more washing! It’s great to have him back after so long, and as my husband has just finished a challenging work placement and a module on his social work course, we’ve decided to take a road trip to northern France. Now three out of the four of us can share the driving, it shouldn’t be too tiring, and Brittany is a region I’m unfamiliar with. Hopefully there’ll be plenty of time to relax and read especially as I still have a number of titles to read if I’m to meet my #20 books of summer target. However, we’re also hoping to make the most of all that time in the car by listening to audio-books. With a combined length of 28 hours, these should make the hours fly by.


As I’ll be travelling and staying in various Air B&Bs, I’m not sure how often I’ll have access to Wifi, so I do apologise in advance if there is a delay in my replying to any comments, and I look forward to catching up on everyone else’s blog posts when I get home.
