If like me, you’re thinking about books that will be good to read on summer holiday getaways, then this is one that you might want to consider. I look for books that don’t have subjects that are too heavy or bog you down with details and plots that have you going backwards and forwards and having to concentrate too much. Just give me something easy to read, preferably with a bit of humour and a good page turner.
A great pastime to learn more about areas when you’re travelling around Australia is to visit local museums. Sometimes even the smallest towns have one and they are usually manned by volunteers with admission prices very reasonable. They are another way of delving into the history of an area and you usually see the story behind how and when the towns were first settled and the industrial or agricultural history and stories behind them.
