As I’m sitting my finals over the next two weeks, I’ve roped in a couple of other friendly, book-loving bloggers to help me out with some guest posts. First up, we’ve got Laura from Women In Progress:
Thanks so much to Laura for letting me guest blog this week. I’ve pulled together a list of books to read when you have no real time to immerse yourself in the Booker prize list.
In selecting these I focused on a few criteria: pace (no endless descriptions or meandering moments), the time it takes to get hooked (short), the need for short chapters (so you can consume in small doses), and nothing that requires high levels of concentration (I’m looking at you Cloud Atlas). They’re also books I’ve read myself during particularly manic periods, often when reading seems like the last thing I should actually be doing. These books work in those times, but they’re equally suited to the interrupted reading of a commute, or when you want to be distracted and Grazia just won’t cut it.
