Since moving into my lovely new house I have polished off several of the books that I was reading over the summer.

A Recipe for Bees was an interesting novel that turned out to be set in Chase/Kamloops and Victoria. Coupled with a bunch of homesteading and beekeeping lore it goes without saying that beyond the story this was a beautiful and relative read.

Bicycle Diaries by David Byrne is another one I’ve just finished. It was a Christmas gift from my sister and not really a book I would have ever picked up or read. It was all about how David takes his folding bike everywhere in the world he goes, bike culture in different cities and other random lore regarding his travels. It was a nice, light and amusing summer read.
