To the desert I go…

I have visited Morocco for 10 over times but I have yet to travel east to the Sahara desert.

I’m very excited to be on the back of the camel and scale this vast landscape even if it’s for an hour or so.

While I’m away for a fortnight, let me know what you will be reading. I have scheduled some posts but I won’t be able to reply to your comments.

Hope you have a good time for the rest of October and see you in November! 🙂

  1. How exciting! How fun Jo. I’ve never been in Morocco – it must be fascinating. What books are you taking with you? Or is that another post? See you in November – with lots of pictures, please.

  2. To tell the truth, I need a lot of catching up with the library department.
    I’ve never been to a desert before. Have fun!

  10. How fantastic, have a great time, Jo! I’ve only been to Tunisia (which was great) and so am as jealous as everyone else here 🙂

Ratings Defined

0 = Abandon the book after first chapter

1 = Waste of paper, we will see what the environmentalist say about this!

2 = Skip it, read the book if you have got nothing better to do

2.5 = An average book, easily forgettable.

3 = A good read.

3.5 = A good entertaining read, a page-turner

4 = So glad that I read the book, a book with substance and invaluable for future reference

4.5 = So glad that I read the book, would pester everyone to read it, invaluable, I would want to own it and wouldn't mind a second read (something that I seldom do)

5 = The book is so good that I feel like I am on scale 4 and 4.5, and more, it blew me away and lingers on my head for weeks!

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. - Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
