Steve Augarde, by the way, is author of the Various trilogy and, when I looked at his website, I realised he also wrote The Tractor Factory, Lifeboat to the Rescue and a number of other delightful books that I once knew off by heart. As to my present reading, I rarely read books twice now that I’m past the stage of Katie Morag, Busytown, Burglar Bill and other such classics, all of which I could probably still recite if tested. But I’ve just read It’s not about the bike by Lance Armstrong and I turned from the last page straight back to the first to read it again. Perhaps it’s not the greatest literature but it struck the most enormous chord. More about that in a future post, I hope.
