I am currently reading quite a lot. Maybe its come down from Christmas and the madness round the start of Jan when my dad died, and now I am getting back into normality, I don't know, but its only Feb and I have got through 2 books, and am well through my 3rd. That doesn't sound a lot, I know, but when I only usually get about 1 hr a day to actually sit down and do stuff, its not bad. I got through We're the Famous Man United by Andy Mitten (which is superb) and the novelisation of Casino Royale. I am a big fan of Bond films, but never actually read any of the novels. It was a good read, but all the way through I struggled to get images from the film out of my head. Which by the end, started to get a bit annoying, I have two more Bond ones to read, think I will leave them for a bit.
Last week I started Lancashire- Where women die of love by Charles Nevin, and a good read it is too so far. Basically he is an exiled Lancastrian (well from St Helen's, but that in itself is part of the tale) who comes back and travels round Lancy, but old Lancy taking in Manchester, Liverpool and the Lakes.
If you are a fan of travel writing, come from Lancashire and want to learn more or just like a damn good read dig this one out it is well written (in my humble view) and gives you the full flavour of Lancashire and what makes the county so great. Well it would be if the cricket team could actually win the county championship, but that is a story for another day.
The day to day ramblings of a 30 something Lancastrian. If you want to read my views on life, the great outdoors, what I am listening to and where I think people should go, then read on. If you wish to contact me please mail stewood(at)gmail.com
