A Book can be a good place to visit

I have been known to read more than one book at a time, some books I read are not for entertainment, but instead for thoughtful absorption of the thoughts they share.

Not so with the book I just raced through and read overnight. The author, Alexander McCall Smith, I have spoken before praising his The No. 1 Ladies  Detective Agency series, which I still love and could reread and endorse it. Smith has a plethora of books and I stopped reading them because they didn’t live up to the No. 1 series. But this book of his, My Italian Bulldozerwas so fun and easy to read, I barely put it down.  It has different flow from the detective series and was light hearted in its own way, I loved it.

30236772THE STORY:    In the book, Paul is a food writer who after being heartbroken in Scotland, he turns to Italy for a working holiday in Tuscany to find inspiration for his latest book and his broken heart.

The only transportation he can find is, yes you know, A bulldozer.  You will see how the bulldozer opens doors and slows Paul down to enjoy his trip.

The bulldozer and Paul embark on a 3 week escape into the Tuscany way of life, you are welcome to do what I did, escape to Tuscany with Paul. 

Loved it, and I hope you do also.


Needing a laugh, but ending up with a song running through my mind all day – I watched this youtube video – Click here, for a video inspired by Flamingos !

  2. I enjoyed the read. It is good to just get put a pack on the back and go wandering places. It was a good read.
