Reading & Watching Wednesday

Yes,  yes, I know it’s Thursday.  It’s been that kind of a week.

I’m just coming to the end of Bill Bryson’s book about his travels around England, and have mostly enjoyed it.  There are some absolutely laugh out loud moments in it, but I have found my mind wandering a little at times.  I think it’s one of those books that’s probably better dipped into a little at a time rather than read all at once.

Next up is Caitlin Moran’s How to Be A Woman, which I’ve been meaning to read since it was published.  I have read the prologue, which I found very disappointing, but will reserve further judgement until I’ve got further into it.

Has anybody else been watching this BBC Three series?  It’s kind of a scientific blind date – hundreds of couples were matched up based on their scientific compatibility on paper, and followed for a year to see what happens.  Some dropped out of the experiment immediately, having hated each other upon sight, some are in serious relationships a year on, and then there’s everything in between as well.  It’s rare that there’s something that’s a completely original idea on TV these days, and I’ve really enjoyed the opportunity to have a nose into people’s relationships.

I’ll try and be on time for next week’s post!

  1. I read Notes from a Small Island quite a few years ago and really enjyed it – lots of laugh out loud moments, as you say. I then read some of his other books – a couple about America and I think he did another UK one, but I’m not sure. Anyway, they were all good. I haven’t heard of the Caitlin Moran book, so I’d be interested to hear what you think when you have finished it.
    I’m not watching the TV programme, but I wish I had – it sounds interesting!

  2. I really loved Bill Bryson’s A Walk In the Woods about walking the Appalachian Trail. I’ll have to look for Notes From a Small Island. (However I didn’t care for his From A Sunburned Land about Australia…I really wanted to…but I just couldn’t get into it no matter how much I tried.)
