Reading books, reviewing books and a little break!

I love to read and do so frequently. So far this year I've read over 90 books.
Mostly they are read on my Kobo e-reader.
Because of this, and because I know how important reviews are to authors, I used to post my review of a book onto Goodreads. Kobo don't have that facility, or I've never found it.
Recently, I stopped doing so - after having had a few people contact me, demanding I read and review their book.

Hello! I am not a book blogger! Simply a girl who loves to read. So from now on, no more reviews, just a simple star rating.
In one way, that's done me a favour, because reviewing takes time.

Now, onto our little break.
We went up the country again, this time to Great Saling.
The weather was beautiful - sunny days at the tail end of October, simply fabulous.
Out by the picnic area I painted plein aire - and very soon had another join me, who was learning watercolour. We spent a good four hours with the brushes, me - in my own little way - teaching him some watercolour basics. It was great fun.

Here are some photos from the area. I hope you enjoy them.


  1. Your trip to the country looks so nice. I love to read too and I need to find the time to sit down and enjoy a good book. It always seems to relax me.

  2. Sounds (and looks) like you had a lovely time! :)

  3. This looks like a very relaxing holiday Pat. I've never been to Great Saling, how did I miss this place!

  4. Hi, Pat, thank you for sharing such beautiful photos!! Best wishes, Sadami

  5. Beautiful photos, lovely Paddy! Arianna
