I have always loved books ever since I learnt to read. The sort of person who would look at an instruction manual if there were nothing else available. Not that that has happened too often - I have tottering piles of books not to mention e books. I will read almost anything as l long as it holds my interest. Besides books. I love music, photography, cryptic crosswords and playing Fitz 1 & 2 games.
No Baggage: A Minimalist Tale of Love and Wandering - Clara Bensen

Clara and Jeff, who only recently met on an online dating agency, fly off to Istanbul with practically not much more than the clothes on their backs. Not sure if this is a travelogue or Clara's story of how she recovered from "falling apart". Jeff I didn't take to at all - he comes across as selfish, (too much "me, me, me"). He was pushy and a freeloader. Both too were ever so slightly patronising, especially on the UK leg of their journey. I was disappointed by this book and even the writer's obvious talent didn't make up for it.
