No photos for today, so I thought I'd share the books I am reading while we are here.
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series by Alexander McCall Smith (a Scot). I haven't read these yet -- in my life at home I guess I just don't have time (or make time?) for this kind of reading, so it's fun to do that here. I'm half-way through the second book. I understand there is a BBC TV series made here, will need to look into that.
Mary Queen of Scots by Alison Weir. I've read a few of her other English royalty titles and since we are going to Scotland and visiting Edinburgh I thought I'd read up on an important chapter in Scottish history. It's tough to keep everyone straight but it's interesting reading.
Nicholas Nickleby and Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. I'm about 1/5 into the first. We'll see how far I get with these two!
Plus it is fun to see this again after recently seeing Imelda Staunton be so amazing in Sweeney Todd.
