Two books on the shelf this week:
The Children of the New Forest - Captain Marryat
This is a book that I have read once before and loved, so naturally I am looking forward to reading it again. It's set during the English Civil War, or just after it and so there is a suitable amount of adventure and tension, but what I remember most from reading it last time was that there was a lot of running backwards and forwards across the forest for no apparent reason. Anyway looking forward to having another read.
A Very Different Christmas - Rico Tice & Nate Morgan Locke
I missed reading this for Christmas but better late than never. This is a new book that came out last year to explain what Christmas is like from the Bible's perspective and I want to find out what it is like. It's not very long so I'm hoping that it will be a quick read.
