With a varied selection of recommendations, January’s book picnic selection covers everything from non-fiction to children’s literature which means that there is something for everyone. Whilst the weather’s still cold outside, why not make your January a month for reading with these ideas from January’s book picnic?
Oh how the holidays come and go- I spent my time on the sofa getting through Swansong by author Kerry Andrew; her first novel, an adaption of a Scottish ballad. I won’t spoil any twists or turns so don’t be frightened! Enclosed are simply my thoughts on the book.
Here are my thoughts on The Luminaries by Eleanor Catton. It’s the perfect world to jump in to if you’re craving to be somewhere other than here and somewhere a bit more exciting.

We have a wide selection of books about the suffrage movement. This blog is about 3 of them, and they are:-
* “From Liberal to Labour With Women’s Suffrage: The Story of Catherine Marshall” – which is a good read but a wee bit academic.
* “The Right To Vote An’ A’ That: a hundred years of Scottish Women Singing” – which is a little lyric book which singers could take out and about with them.
* “Caroline Phillips: Aberdeen Suffragette and Journalist” – which is a champion to Aberdeen Art Gallery’s unique correspondence collection.
All of them illustrate the important contribution women have made to history.
