World Book Day

World Book Day – some of this years reads.

I love books. There is something so exciting about picking up a new book and not knowing where it will take you. I re-read my books a lot. Sure, most are about mountains and hills and places, but inside there are people ad animals and the landscape, which means I get to visit places again and again and see them anew. There is always something I have not seen before.

This years reads have so far been

An Infinity of Small Hours – Nancy Klein Maguire – about the austere Parkminster

Common Ground – Rob Cowen – everyday life transformed

Dark Peak Walks – Paul Besley – Walks in the Dark Peak Peak District

The Rucksack Club Journal 1959 – irreverent, informative, and thoroughly enjoyable

The High Places – A. Harry Griffin – no one better on the Lake District

Travels with a Flea – Jim Perrin – opens the door to new adventures

The Journal of the Fell and Rock Climbing Club 1959 – amazing tales from everyday people

A Land – Jacquetta Hawkes – Beautiful nature writing about Britain

The Hills of Wales – Jim Perrin – as always Jim has to be read again and again

Author: Paul Besley

Writer I have spent most of my life escaping into the Peak District National Park, I have grown to love the solitude it can bring. I also have an interest in the growing field of psychogeography particularly, in post-industrial landscapes. I am the author of Dark Peak Walks published by Cicerone Press. I am also studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University.
