More Best Holiday Reads

See, this is the time of year the Brits go on holiday to do some serious reading on a beach somewhere.

So the Telegraph has a list of best books to pack and if that's not enough for you, the Sunday Times features its 100 best holiday books, with 50 works of fiction, and 50 of non-fiction.

A few books make both lists including Digging to America by Anne Tyler, Everyman by Philip Roth, and Theft; A Love Story by Peter Carey

Life's too short. Purse's too empty. Oh dear.

Absolutely hated "Short History of Tractors..." - had so much expectations of it but it fizzled out so quickly.
