Holiday Book Haul


So I’m back from my holiday in Boscastle, Cornwall. Isn’t it a beautiful place? The cottage we stayed in is right on the river and it’s a constant calming background noise. This is the view from the cottage:


I didn’t buy that many books this holiday, last year I bought a few from Truro charity shop and two from the second hand shop right opposite my cottage. I couldn’t find any I fancied in the second hand shop and I wanted to limit how many I bought. That was easy giving that the places we visited didn’t have books shops. I did find a book in the English Heritage shop in Tintagel, ‘Cornish Short Stories’ I’ve read afew already and they are really good.

But I found a bookshop in Padstow:

I had to borrow this image from goggle/trip advisor as it was too busy to get a good photo

Ok, I didn’t just stumble upon it, I checked online to see if there was one. These are my books:


The Salt Path by Raynor Winn I’d heard about recently, I’d read a sample online and loved it but didn’t want to buy it just yet, so many books, but I couldn’t pass a signed copy. I’ve read the first few chapters and I’m hooked already.

Trying not to read too much of these books yet as I still have one on the go and one to start, a classic book I read with members of the readitswapit forum.


It’s really hard though as they’re both good books. The Salt Path is a story of a woman and her husband walking and camping on the South West Coast Path which is 630 miles going from Somerset to Devon, via Devon and Cornwall. A true story! I recommend it, I’ll let you know more when I finish it ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you got a holiday planned/ have you been? Do you plan to buy books? Or take them with you?

    1. Yes, they are great. We always go in early July so it’s cheaper than when the school holidays start but we get good weather for a British holiday ๐Ÿ™‚ And it’s a long wait otherwise
