Can You Keep A Secret – Sophie Kinsella

A light frothy read, which kept me engrossed from 11pm on Thursday to 3am Friday morning… yes it was a “completed in one read” book.

Not demanding at all, and all the more welcome for that – I’ve an over abundance of work things occupying my brain at the moment, and it’s a welcome relief to read something which is the literary equivalent of, say, “This Life”. A right rollicking read, likeable and unlikeable characeters, plot lines that wouldn’t stand up to too much scrutiny – perfect escapism.

Rough Guide to Chile

… planning for my 4 weeks travelling in Chile with Hazel. 33 days to go. I can’t wait – I’ve really had enough of my projects right now, the takeover one in particular. If it wasn’t for Phil, I honestly think I’d be pondering heading off for longer.

None of which has *anything* to do with reading the Rough Guide!! I’ve spent some of this evening mapping the transport routes south of Puerto Montt using Phil’s Omnigraffle – the Mac equivalent of Visio. It all looks increasingly enticing, but I can’t spot a way of getting between Coiahaique/Puerta Aisen and Punta Arenas/Puerto Natales and Tierra del Fuego. I really wish the guide books would show transport routes on a single map….
