Well, I managed a couple of James Pattersons whilst on a four-day rail tour to the West Highlands of Scotland. I read Honeymoon first and thoroughly enjoyed it, though that could have been the beauty of being sat in an armchair on a train whilst periodically being silver-served snacks and dinner. On the way back I read 7th Heaven, which wasn’t as good, but still had me engaged. I also picked up a book, Murder on the Mallaig Express, in Fort William, but suspect it’s a bit too similar to Agatha Christie for me to inhale in one go.
Clearly I needed a break from chick lit until I jumped to Serious Literature. I’ve started to read Kafka on the Shore (Murikami) but, mercifully, have been too distracted by actual writing to find the time to read. No doubt I’ll be back to reading once the WB kicks in (writers block) but until then I’m going to continue in my “Edit One Chapter a Writing Day” mission and distract myself from WB as often as I can.
