...or rather, 10 days at the end of August. As you know Persephone Reading Week starts tomorrow, and the last title I'm intending to read on Friday is Sheriff's Fortnight in September. Because, we will be off on our holidays to the seaside, and I have been saving that book to read (even before PRW was thought of!) as it seemed like an appropriate title.
Anyway, I have been starting to pack. Here is my suitcase:
We are taking some of our collection of books about Cornwall:
I have chosen some books for my boyfriend:
And got out some books for myself:
This little collection consists of books I have been saving for a while (Maiden's Trip; The great lover; The well tempered clavier), books which I know I will enjoy (the two stripy greyladies titles), books which seem appropriate for a holiday by the sea in the summer and in Cornwall (Summer's day, No signposts in the sea, The tent the bucket and me, Zennor in darkness; The sealady), and some chicklit/light reads (Fixing Kate, Guppies for tea; Cast of smiles) which I've picked up in charity shops.
I'm not intending to read ALL of these; I like to have things to choose from. And I'm visiting Foyles this week so may add to this collection...
Thank goodness we are taking the car, and not flying anywhere!
