I have a TBR (to be read) pile of quite some height at present. But having been unwell for the past week I felt unable to tackle some of the weightier tomes. It was the same with food - only light would do. So I tucked into a book I had previously avoided, as I thought it too lightweight. The book is Bill Bryson's Notes From A Small Island. The book was a treat. Bill (as I now call him!) is an unashamed anglophile. Last night he was on the news, he's signed a petition to prevent the sell off of woodland to overseas investors. He rails against litter and the ripping up of our ancient hedgerows. He is the President for The Campaign To Protect Rural England.
These issues are close to my heart too. Maybe my eating and reading diet will revert back to my old habits this week, but I will try and amend my judging ways and keep in mind the saying, don't judge a book by it's cover.
