When traveling you tend to read a lot especially on planes, trains and buses. So this page is a list of books that we’ve read that we found particularly enjoyable. We hope you find something here that you like as well!
- “The Truth About Luck” by Iain Reid: Did you ever wonder what would happen if you took your grandmother on a road trip with you…just you? Well Iain finds out and the results I think are heartwarming and human. I really liked this book. It was honest, down-to-earth, and refreshing. Something that all of us probably should do at least once in our lives and that is get to know the people in your family that you’ve never really thought of getting to know.
- “Quiet – The Power Of Introverts In A World That Can’t Stop Talking” by Susan Cain: All I can say is ‘where was this book when I was in high school?’ This book has great insight to all the things that are great about being an introvert. If you’re not an introvert please read this book so you can understand those of us who are and if you are an introvert please read this book so you know that there’s nothing wrong with you AND you are so much more powerful than anyone usually gives you credit for. Loved this book!
- “Whispers Across Time” by J. Robert Whittle: This historical/supernatural novel is written by a local Victoria, B.C. writer whom I had the pleasure of meeting in Bastian Square. He is an interesting older gentleman who could probably write a story of his own life and have it be just as interesting as his fiction. Having said that I really like this book. It has the supernatural which I like (the main character is a mortal angel) but the entire book is filled with historically accurate facts about Victoria and the eras that the book covers. I really enjoyed it too because as I was reading it I was looking out my window towards all these places that I was walking every day while staying in Victoria. I’ve bought several other books of his as well and look forward to reading those as well. Many of them have received awards for his writing too.
