Extreme Reading: Ashbourne


An alternative view of the Torch Relay. Great blog for those who enjoy reading though!

A Rat in the Book Pile

(Sitting on a traffic island…)

It’s a bit late to worry about it now, but what do you read when you are awaiting the arrival of the Olympic Torch?

The only book I can think of with an Olympic tie-in is International Velvet… but as it turns out Hemingway was just fine. Arriving two hours early to secure a good spot (and yeah, the traffic island did seem to fit the bill) even a substantial picnic wasn’t going to pass that quantity of time comfortably. My three girls were surprisingly enthusiastic to read, which was a bit of shame for their friend who was less keen, but they carried on regardless. Uh huh. Don’t know where they get their bad reading manners from.
