225 of 365


We'd planned to have a quiet day on August 13th, staying around the hotel complex, relaxing a bit after some busy days out and about. Just as well as it turned out, because it chucked it down with rain most of the day!! Good opportunity to catch up with some holiday reading :-)

And lunch included some yummy pasta with a chicken skewer:

Have you read the novel In the Company of the Courtesan by Sarah Dunant? It was really good and set in Venice! I highly recommend it.

The reading all looks good .... but really ... The Story Of Mathematics? Mel! On holidays you are still into the maths????? ;-)

Rhona said...

I have a few of those books too ;o) Sometimes a day of quiet is just what you need while on holiday.

Oooh, the Lost Art of Keeping Secrets is lovely! Hurrah for quiet days!

I've read a fair few of these as well ... but, come on Mel, The Story of mathematics? On holiday? Too weird!

OK, I think I'd better 'fess up! I didn't actually get around to reading the maths book while we away... I totally could have done though if I'd had a bit more reading time! We did so much rushing around that we didn't have a lot of time to just read - though I still managed to get through all the relevant bits of the travel guides, plus the Encyclopaedia of an Ordinary Life, The Eyre Affair, Me and Mr Darcy, Girl Friday, and all the magazines. I'm now reading The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets at home :-) And I will read that maths book soon too!

I love the pile of Guide books: looks like me - I can never do anything or go anywhere without buying a book about it first!

That's a lot of holiday reading to cram into an overhead luggage locker; we applaud your spirit. I used to like Mr Fforde but I reckon he came up with too much of a good thing. Is the Encyclopaedia of Ordinary Life a good read?

humel said...

Mise - I wasn't quite sure what to make of The Eyre Affair! Really not sure I'll be looking out for Thursday Next's other adventures! I enjoyed the Encyclopaedia and I think you probably would too xx

That's some reading list! What did the rest of the family have in their respective piles?
