20071015 Robert the Bruce @ HermitageSo this time next week I will be on leave for three (count them, that’s three) weeks, two of which will be spent in Scotland relaxing with the Book God in some very nice hotels, enjoying good food and (very possibly) having the occasional wee dram, but probably not waving my battlaxe around while accompanied by a spider like good old Robert the Bruce here.

The biggest decision that always has to be made in advance of our annual hols is what goes on the reading list; I’ve been pondering this for a couple of weeks now and I reckon I’ve cracked it.

Just remember that this is only my list; the Book God will have his own…..

  1. Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
  2. The Children’s Book by AS Byatt
  3. Tales of Terror from the Tunnel’s Mouth by Chris Priestley
  4. Handling the Undead by John Ajvide Lindqvist
  5. Transition by Iain Banks
  6. Duma Key by Stephen King

I will have my trusty laptop with me and am hoping to post on most days, so watch this space to see how I get on with my reading list and what else I get up to…..
