Do you have Easter plans this year? We’ll be camping in the New England area of New South Wales – one of our favourite places. (These are pics from our last trip down there, you can probably see why we love it.)
It’s a nice long drive from Samford and I’m thinking of an audio book for the trip so we can listen together. We’ll each take along a book to read at night too. Here’s what we’ll be reading:
Roger: Moriarty by Anthony Horowitz. Sherlock Homes is dead and one of his most devoted students is on the trail of a new criminal mastermind – sounds like a page turner – perfect for reading with a fishing rod in the other hand.
Kim: The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante. The second in the four part series – the first, My Brilliant Friend, was my Christmas Eve book and I’d finished it by the end of Boxing Day. I think this one will be just as good.
Jesse: Demelza by Winston Graham. Sometimes you just need to descend into a period drama. Demelza is the second in a series of twelve – so I wouldn’t count on Jesse getting through all of them – but it’s a lot of fun and we all loved the BBC production, Poldark, based on books one and two.
Peet: Submission by Michael Houellebecq. Peet is always up for a bit of political satire. This one is set in 2022 and contemplates a world where Islamic law controls France. It’s billed as being satirical, melancholic, and hilarious.
I hope you have a lovely Easter with plenty of time for reading and reflecting on all that is good and beautiful in life.
