What I Just Finished Reading
Olive, Mabel and Me by Andrew Cotter. Now I’ve finished it I’m still not quite sure how to describe this book. It’s about his dogs and hillwalking. It’s very readable and it’s funny the way he ascribes human thoughts to his dogs – I suppose in the same way as his videos.
The Ravenmaster by Christopher Skaife. This is by the Yeoman Warder who is the current Ravenmaster at the Tower of London. It’s mostly about the ravens, but also has some of his background. It was really interesting all the stuff he says about ravens and it’s interesting to hear what they get up to. He clearly really cares about them – he spent ages researching their enclosure to give them the best life possible. But basically, if you’re there, don’t let go of any food or take your eye off it, or the ravens’ll have it!
What I’m Currently Reading
The Bloody Tower by Carola Dunn. A re-read, rather than a to read book I should get through. But it’s set in the Tower of London, so I thought that now I’ve been there and watched the TV series it’ll be interesting to read it again. I can’t remember whodunnit – but then I also can’t remember who was done in yet either.
What I’m Reading Next
Theoretically, something from my to read pile.
