Great books for great readers

We’ll be away for a while…

on July 22, 2012

Tomorrow we are off to France for our holidays. We’re very excited, although exhausted as we have been tidying the house and trying to work out what to pack (I am sure we’ve got far too much stuff!).

For the next ten days, my lovely friend Lynne and her sons Seth and Neil are going to look after the blog for us. We’re excited because we’re aware that we always provide a female point of view, so it will be good to have some thoughts from boys. So please keep visiting and commenting (I can’t wait to read what they have written when we come back).

Just as a little update, we have picked our audiobooks for our travels. This was a particularly important task as we are spending a lot of time in the car. The books we went for are:

Mr Gum and the Goblins, read and written by Andy Stanton

This last one was on Holly’s insistence!

I think we should have enough to entertain us, especially as the Harry Potter one runs into 20 hours. We will  be sure to write some reviews when we get back!
Until then, a bientot to you all!
Sam and Holly

    Sounds like you guys are set! (I always have to clean the house before I go away, nothing worse than coming home from vacation to someplace you have to clean!)

    Looking forward to the guest posts :)

    Bonnes Vacances!

  2. Have a fabulous time with lots of happy listening. I’m with you and Andrea – I can’t bear to come home to a messy place and always get it spotless before we leave and exhaust myself in the doing – but … it is always nice to come home to.

    A bientot!

    I look forward to your guest bloggers :)
