Book Retreat

I'm so excited. This weekend I'm headed to Wales to have a long 4 day weekend at a Book Retreat. The retreat is put on by Anna, who runs the Wenlock Books store that I've talked about before. I don't know anyone who is going except Anna, so that makes me a bit worried....but the whole object is to get some rest really (for me). We are free to roam during the day, but during the evening we are going to be reading short stories and discussing them. That ought to be good fun. Anna hasn't told us what kind of stories she is picking out yet.

I hope to spend some time with my computer typing out reviews that I'm behind! I've written one that I'll post, but I've read around 3 others I think.

So what am I taking to read???

Gillian Tindall
The House by the Thames

An Indian Attachment
Sarah Lloyd

Wolves eat Dogs
Martin Cruz Smith

Barbara Pym
An Unsuitable Attachment

I might sneak something else in too....but that is what I plan on taking....and two blankets I'm making....and well....probably more stuff too.....must remember NOT to take to much!

I tell you all about it when I get back!
