Goodbye #montblanc ! I’m gonna miss that #view . Heading back to Edinburgh today. #nofilter ...

#cloudy this morning but #montblanc is peeping through #lesarcs #lesarcs1800 #travelgram ...

#reading #youngadultbooks for this #sundayreading - seen this around for a while but never picked it up before. I’ve read #thefaultinourstars and seen the film... but nothing else of #johngreen #sundayreads #bookstagram #bookaholic ...

I’ve got two books on the go today for my #sundayreading and why not, I’m on #holiday there is a link though - the Du Maurier story has #timetravel . Keen followers will note a theme with last #sundayreads - all research for a new project. #amwritingfantasy #bookstagram #booklover #booksworthreading ...

Wasn’t sure how I’d get on with this #sundayreading - first published in 1939, a classic #childrensbooks which I’ve never read before. Loving it, particularly the descriptions which invoke smells so much; really immersive. #sundayreads #amreading #bookstagram #booklover #books #booksworthreading ...

It doesn’t matter if this #sundayreading doesn’t captivate me; the surroundings will make up for it. #sundayreads #holidays #holidayreads #montblanc #arc1800 ...

Anyone who thought time spent in #lockdown2020 was #timewasted then look at my achievements. These are all the #boardgames I learnt during #covid19 #boardgame #boardgamegeek ...

Enjoying this #sundayreading so far. She’s such a brilliant writer and this is an enthralling account of #growingup in the #70s in #Scotland. #sundayreads #bookstagram #booksworthreading ...

Sorting out papers and Bertie fancied one of my filing boxes. #catsofinstagram #writingcommunity #writingwithcats ...

#cat totally bored with #boardgames ...

Not this one again #catsofinstagram #boardgameday #boardgamers #boardgames #catlife ...

Could only bear to read this #sundayreading now. Bit gruesome start and so far this lockdown seems worse than ours. So maybe it’s a cheerful #sundayread after all #sundayreads #bookstagram #booksworthreading #amreadingcrime #amreadingcrimefiction ...

I’ve had this #sundayreading in my #toberead pile for a while, but can’t think why I haven’t gone for it before! It’s got everything: #humour #fantasy #mystery and it’s a gripping read. Think I will zip through it. Luckily it’s first in a series #sundayreads #bookaholic #bookstagram #booksworthreading #amreading ...

Gateau our #cat so ready to join in #boardgames #lockdown2020 #catsofinstagram ...

Today’s #sundayreading is quite bleak and dystopian but I’m gripped so far. #sundayreads #bookstagram #booklover #booksworthreading #amreadingfantasy #amreading ...

Top Ten Reads for a Virtual Summer Holiday: Lockdown Escapism

When you're packing to go on holiday, is your priority the reading list? It is for me; if I've got a weight limit it's always a source of anxiety whether I'm going to exceed it, or have to risk RUNNING OUT OF THINGS TO READ. If this describes your mindset, then...
