Now then, what have I read for Peggy’s challenge since I last wrote about it? To be honest I haven’t read anything very much at all for a while, however I have made a start on Tom Steel’s Life and Death of St Kilda, and am enjoying it very much, learning more about the islanders way of life over the centuries.
Before that I read a book I picked up at a Peebles book sale last year. It is called Noost and was written by Frank Renwick, about the mythical Shetland isle of the title. There isn’t really a story, though characters from one chapter appear in others, yet there is a bit of a story or two running through the book. It was very amusing – a bit silly - though I almost put it aside without reading it at first, as the pages seemed not to have paragraphs, and a whole page with no indentations struck me as very off-putting!!
So does that make 8 books read? I’ve lost count! I dare say if you wanted to take part in the challenge you could still visit Peggy Ann’s Post and sign yourself up. You have a choice of how many books you aim to read.
Talk again soon.
