Reading Holiday [also known as a break from work where I do nothing but read, eat and sleep]

I’m taking a week off work, and even though I feel like they’ll have to rip me from my desk and force me to enjoy it, I am looking forward to it.

(I may have to be blocked from accessing my emails.)

Rather than go anywhere, spending money I don’t have, I shall be reading (and eating, but that another post for another time, explaining why I had to buy a Fitbit with money from my birthday). I’ve started and not finished a few books in the last few months and I want to finally get through them so I can stop staring that them with sad eyes.

Other than Go Set A Watchman I will be reading:

  • Mother Tongue, Bill Bryson
  • The Odyssey, Homer
  • King Solomon’s Mines, H. Rider Haggard
  • The Country of Ice Cream Star, Sandra Newman
  • Greensleeves, Elouise Jarvis Mcgraw
  • Lundy, Rockall, Dogger, Fair Isle: A Celebration of the Islands Around Britain, Mathew Clayton & Anthony Atkinson
  • Hausfrau, Jill Alexander Essbaum

I can get all that done in a week, right?

Are any of you off on your hols soon?

  1. Aaaaa Greensleeves! I was already so excited for you when I read the first bit of your post, and then I became absolutely delighted when I got to the part about reading Greensleeves. It’s the perfect book for a holiday week! You will love it! (I hope)


  2. Good list. If you’ve planned to spend it reading then yes, you’ll get to them all because the motivation’s there 🙂 I’ve had a couple of days here and there but no true holiday as yet. I’m looking forward to some reading at some point, though.
