Some Recent Suggestions
If you’d like to see more of my past favorites, be sure to check out this page with all my favorites on Bookshop. We recently switched to Bookshop because they support small, independent bookstores. The discounts aren’t as great as Amazon but you are helping support small booksellers that are the lifeblood for many communities. (But, if you only use Kindle, here’s the link to our Amazon page where you can get books from there too.)
Book of the Month: Scotland Beyond the Bagpipes by Helen Ochyra
Every month, we select one book to read and then do a virtual Q&A with the author. Think of it like a book store’s author event but from the privacy of your own home! This month, we’re reading Scotland Beyond the Bagpipes by Helen Ochyra.
Like so many people who live in England, Helen thought that she knew all about Scotland. It was a part of Britain after all, a place that was surely more the same than it was different. But then she stepped off the train at Waverley station, and everything changed…
Helen discovered a place altogether different from her home country down south. Over her first few days in Edinburgh, a spell was cast and she was captivated by Scotland’s magic. As she was bewitched by the city and its volcanic landscape she also found herself charmed by Scotland’s famously chatty people. She left wanting more.
In 2017, after the sudden loss of her mother, Helen returned finally to explore properly. Over three months she took a personal journey around Scotland, uncovering stories about the history, the geography, and the people of this peerless, magical country. As so many people who have fallen in love with it say, she maintains that there is “just something about Scotland”. But can she put her finger on it?
