Walking and Digging in the company of Audio Books

To help me in my recent exercise drive I have taken up brisk walking for thirty minutes a day. I am really pleased with my progress as I have managed to keep this going for about a month now. I know that to some people this is not much but for me it is an achievement that I hope to maintain.

I am aided and abetted in this endeavour by my ever-increasing audio library. I have for many years listened to audio books, first with my children and then later because I really enjoyed being read to.

My latest listen is After the Fire by the Swedish author Henning Mankell, in fact I have just finished listening to this. It is a  brooding book that explores some of the darker sides of human behaviour.

In the future I will aim to post a comment about the chapters I have listen to after each walk.


About booksfrommybookshelf

I am a passionate reader of children's books (Primary aged) with a particular interest in picture books. I am always on the look out for children's books at are written by authors from other countries. I am also keen on technology and try to keep abreast of what is happening in a fast changing world. At present my day job is to support teachers and local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber region (UK), which I really enjoy. Another aspect of my work is to present nationally developed work for the National Strategies. With economic cuts my job will terminate in Spring next year and I may be carrying out independent work based around high quality picture books. My other interest include my allotment, knitting and last but not least my family. My Twitter name is Orlama.
