Some summer reading



We're swinging around in Lakka, it's Mr Grigg's birthday and we've just one more day to go.

We'll head up for Kaloura for cuttlefish in red sauce and fresh calamari.

It's a hard life.

And I've read seven books in as many days. A real mixed bag:

The Suspicions of Mr Whicher by Kate Summerscale
Under the Skin by Michael Faber
Fifty Shades of Sh*te (sorry, Grey) by E L James
The Ionian Islands and Epirus, A Cultural History by Jim Potts (aka Corfu Bluesman)
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
To Be Sung Underwater by Tom McNeil
Olympic Flames by my friend Emma Lee-Potter

And, as always, dipping in and out of Rod Heikell's pilot book for the Ionian, which guides you not only on where to drop your anchor but gives you a whole host of cultural and historical facts and tales too.

That's about it.

Until next time, that's about it.
