I never make enough time for reading. I really do love a good book but the time escapes me (probably because I am blog surfing or watching way too much TV) and I just don’t curl up for the hours I image myself doing. So in an attempt to not let my brain go completely to mush, I have a great book club where I can read the books that make me think.
Then there are light books. These are the easy reads that are a great escape for a while. The type of book you can follow in the fifteen minutes at the doctor’s office or before you pass out exhausted at the end of the day. One that I read a while ago that I just loved was Three Bags Full – A Sheep Detective Story by Leonie Swann. Perhaps I am a bit biased as I have quite the fondness for sheep but it is a good and definitely different read. You will never look at sheep the same again.
Today I am on a road trip and I got the audio copy of the sheepy book and a few others to keep myself company. Yay! I can not listen to anything that requires too much attention for my road trips or I will get too lost in the book that I get lost on the road too.
Got any favourite light reads? Anything you could go back to for a re-read, simply for the pleasure of it? (I find the Anne books are great for that. A great pick-up on a sleepless night.)
