At the moment, I’m reading a book about how preparations for D-Day was affecting the local area. It’s fascinating and it prompted our visit to Warsash the weekend before last. I’m about halfway through the book, and am looking for mentions of specific locations, rather than “just” towns.
I have several books lined up, one of them is a history of photography, and I’ve also started reading “How to write Non-Fiction” by Joanna Penn. I had started reading the book, and whilst I am always a bit sceptical about books like this when I started reading this one, I just liked her style of writing. Reading it now will be as much as for pleasure as for anything I might get out of it.
I mostly suspend book reading whilst I have a magazine on the go, at the moment it’s Country Walking, nearly there and then I can go back to D-Day. Once I finish that, I’m not sure if it is the Penn book or photography. I also have the follow on book to the village life that I was reading, one about life in the big house a’ la Downton Abbey. I do have a little bit of a dilemma as to the order to read, but I think that will settle down in to a natural order.
