This week I’m reading this, which for a free Kindle book is well written, interesting and very entertaining. And ticks the ‘Travel’ box nicely on my 2013 reading challenge list.
I’ve also just started this …
It’s a huge and rather off-putting breeze block of a book, but has been languishing unread in my bookcase for so long that I felt guilty for not reading it. Again, it fits nicely into my 2013 reading challenge, under the History/Biography section. It is also handily broken down into about 115 chapters, so I intend to read one or two chapters a day alongside whatever else I’m reading, as it’s not the sort of book that I think I can get through successfully in any other way!
I’ve also decided to join in with Vicki’s Richard & Judy Summer Book Club Challenge, over at Books, Biscuits & Tea, the idea of which is that we read all ten books between 1st June & 31st August. These are the selections, and I’ll be tracking my progress over on my Reading Challenge page.
There hasn’t been much on the TV of late that I’ve wanted to watch, but I’ve just finished the boxset of this little gem, which was originally broadcast by the BBC in 2004.
It doesn’t fit into any specific genre – it’s part-thriller, part-black comedy, part-musical, part love-story, and sometimes almost a parable, too. I absolutely loved it, it was so different from anything I’ve ever seen before, and with a stellar cast, too – David Morrissey, Sarah Parish and David Tennant were all superb.
What are you reading/watching this week?
