It‘s 1678 and most of the New World is still covered in forest. A mother takes one wrong turn and she and her young child are lost in the woods for quite some time. The beauty of untouched forest is overpowered only by the terror of being lost and utterly alone. #onmyown #MusicalNewYear

Cinfhen Sounds haunting ( in a good way) love discovering new to me books 4y

#MusicalNewYear #day6 #OnMyOwn Before I got sick,nature was my drug. I loved bushwalking in the mountains,the more remote the better.I miss that so much, the smell of the bush, dripping leaves, mist & the pureness Of the air. This book is about McFarlanes own solo walking trip along the ancient roads & pathways all over Great Britain. There‘s something magical about being on your own in nature, it‘s the best feeling in the world. God I miss that😞

Cinfhen I went for a walk today, Liz and it‘s true. There is something magical about being outdoors. Hoping you‘ll find yourself back on your own two feet soon 💕💕💕 4y
Chrissyreadit @Lizpixie I feel exactly the same way! It‘s been almost 4 years since I was hit by this illness and my biggest depression is loss of hiking and walking outside. 4y
vivastory I'm sorry you're not able to get outside as much. Hopefully soon! 4y

Catching up on Day 6 #musicalnewyear

I cannot be left #onmyown in a bookstore. I can stay in there forgetting food, and time. And of course there‘s no telling how many books will follow me home..

Walden | Henry David Thoreau

"I find it wholesome to be alone the greater part of the time. To be in company, even with the best, is soon wearisome and dissipating. I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude."

I don't know if I'd take it as far as Thoreau, but I definitely appreciate some time #onmyown.

#OnMyOwn One of the excellent self-published authors out there. Some times it pays to take a risk!
I love Alex Lukeman‘s Project Series - a mixture of action books, spies, historical facts and relationships. Certainly worth exploring and in the UK the first book is free to download, what have you got to lose! They are short and quick reads. Www.alexlukeman.com

Cinfhen Nice to highlight an independent writer 👍🏻 4y
vivastory Hadn't heard of these, very interesting 4y
Andrew65 @Cinfhen A great little series. @vivastory 4y

The author of this travelogue sets out to row solo down the length of the Egyptian Nile, an activity that isn‘t technically legal. That little fact (and crocodiles) make this a fascinating read.


BethFishReads Oooh I bet I‘d like this 4y
DGRachel This sounds fascinating! 4y
saresmoore Crocodiles! Alligators, I can manage, but crocodiles are terrifying. 4y
Cinfhen Cool 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 4y
vivastory Sounds intriguing. Stacked! 4y
