My objective for this blog is to share many aspects of my new life here in Barbados, ranging from books to food to travels and exploring the island. Whilst I have time on my hands to finally sit down and write, I also find that I have time on my hands to sit down and read; one of my favourite and most relaxing hobbies.
As I’m not a member of any book clubs here, I’ve been considering how I can share my joy of reading, and the books that I have read and hopefully create a two way dialogue with other like minded people. Currently I have decided to do that via my Barefoot in Barbados blog and until I come up with another mechanism, I will post my reviews under the strap-line of ‘A Novel Idea….’. I hope to post one a week, but don’t despair if time runs away with me and I can’t get through a book in that time. If there is a lapse in time before the next review is published, why not share what you are reading with me, either via this page, my Facebook page (@barefootinbados) or Twitter (@barefootbados).
I’ve just finished ‘A man called Ove’ by Fredrik Backman. Look out for the review coming soon!
