I’ve finally made it to that elusive number 10. It’s been a long 6 weeks to get there! I have to admit this goal is a lot more challenging than I thought. Even just to bank a few books for the summer. The last two weeks have seen a slow down of my breakneck pace I had set at the beginning of January. I guess that is to be expected. The stress is high as I have told a lot of people about this goal and I want to make it happen. Any ways…..
So Wildwood: A Journey Through Trees by Roger Deakin was excellent. It was less tree talk than I wanted, but still some wonderful stories were told in its pages about trees and wood working tradition across England. I kind of appreciate the history of trees in the UK and have a greater sense of what I’ll be getting myself into at the end of the summer. Mr. Deakin was an amazing naturalist and a treasure for the UK and the world. I am glad to have read it.
