Weekly Reading Roundup
June 11, 2013 30 Comments
A late “Monday” post this week, as I arrived from my holiday in Tenerife early this morning. I read a decent amount, but wasted a bit of time reading half of The Twelve by Justin Cronin, before abandoning it. Actually, I did sort-of liked the beginning, but after 350 pages I was getting rather bored.
I read a lot at the pool side, under a parasol on a lounger. The good life! I also did the Spanish lessons offered by the hotel (very low-key, but fun) and aquafit in the pool. Other things I did – going shopping (bottled water in particular), going on walks, spending a few hours at the hotel spa, and I did two organised tours. One around the island of Tenerife, and one to the centre of the island, to visit a volcano. Both were really good tours.
Now, I know people love to see pictures, especially with a blogger in them, so, OK, here’s the sea side near my hotel, the volcano, and myself near a large cactus plant.
