I’ve not been about much the past few days because I needed a rest after the cookery and because I have been catching up with my Amazon reviews. I have a habit of “buying” free whodunnits for my Kindle and as a result I have a backlog- partly because they are quicker to buy than to read, and partly because I can’t read many at a time.
They are generally squeaky clean American women in their 20s or 30s with successful businesses in lovely American small towns, often in Maine. Jessica Fletcher has a lot to answer for. If you read too many of them I swear you run the risk of becoming diabetic.
I’ve managed a couple of serious reviews though and one of them is on the Book Review page – The Wild Life: A year of living on Wild Food by John Lewis-Stempe – author of Meadowland. I think it’s a bit better than Meadowland and a bit more realistic. He spends a year living on food he forages from his 40 acre holding in Herefordshire. That’s rabbit, pigeon, pheasant and green salad. Yes, salad every day.
Anyway, go to the review page if you want a look. There will be a few more appearing soon, though with the Quercus Christmas Party tomorrow it might not be for a day or two.
I will also get a photo up.
