I am always reading. I literally always have at least one book on the go; I read before I go to sleep, it helps me relax and sometimes, if the book is really good I will read while I am having my breakfast. If I am ever out in the car for a long journey and my husband is driving, I read then too. But recently I haven't been able to really settle into a book. I have partially read an Alison Weir novel, then I started to read a book called "Last Child in the Woods" I couldn't really get into either of them, not because they aren't good books but it just wasn't what I wanted or needed to read at this moment in time. So I picked up a book off the shelf that I have read before called "Living the Good Life". If you have read this blog a long time you will know that I am really into self-sufficiency, I have my own allotment and like to fantasise about having a smallholding, giving up work and doing it ourselves. This book by Linda Cockburn is about her life of self-sufficiency in Australia and it is really great (like reading while I eat breakfast great). I am in full on fantasy mode when it comes to self-sufficiency, watched a couple of episodes of the Good Life this week and went to the allotment today to plant some broad beans. All because of a couple of chapters of this fab book.
So what have you been reading recently, anything get you really inspired?
op.s. if you are interested Linda Cockburn has a blog about her life of self-sufficiency in Australia, read about it here.
