I don’t usually consider home-confinement a punishment - I can become a sort of a recluse given half a chance, but this feels a bit different. Maybe because of its compulsory nature
So, my escape, I suspect - will be to books. I thought it would be great to hear if people are reading more because of the situation, and if so - what. I’ve picked up some really good suggestions from members in the past, so always looking for a new recommendation!
At the moment I’m reading Parisians: An Adventure History of Paris, by Graham Robb, having been SO impressed with his The Discovery of France:
I’m also finishing The Invention of Tradition, which had created mini shock-waves for me, and made me look afresh at such things as Scottish Highland traditions, and the British monarchy. Highly recommended if you like that sort of social history:
The husband had just started Why We Sleep: The New Science of Sleep and Dreams by Matthew Walker, which had been recommended by this Forum:
He’s already trying to change some habits due to it! I can’t wait to get my turn - though I need very little advice on how to sleep better, being a champion sleeper.
Would love to hear what other people in the community are reading at the moment - or even old favourites!
Over to you…
