Yesterday was day 3 of Bout of Books and I actually finished my first book, woo! Hospital appointments meant I spent the morning going in and out of rooms (into one to have my blood pressure taken, back to the waiting room, into another to have my blood sugar taken, back to waiting room, in for a scan, back to waiting room, into another to see the diabetes team, home) but did allow me some time to get some reading done and I managed to finish Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo which is amazing and I WILL be reviewing it in the not too distant future. The rest of the day was pretty much a write-off reading wise because due to a neighbour complaining about the fact that our child makes noise and occasionally we slightly raise our voices in order to hear each other, I now feel like I can't stay in at all during the day in case Benji annoys someone, so we spent the day walking in the pretty countryside, which was lovely but knackering and didn't leave much time for anything else! Thursday might be better as we're off to my parents house for a few days, meaning there will be a lot more people around to cuddle Ben and pay him attention :-)

'This Made Me Think of That' hosted by My Overstuffed Bookshelves. For this challenge we have to take our current read and pair it with something. Currently I'm reading Peter Duck by Arthur Ransome which is the third book in the Swallows and Amazons series and its' obvious pairing in book terms is probably Swiss Family Robinson by Johann Wyss. Otherwise, I'd pair it with cake. Any kind of cake, but probably fruit cake would go the best. Anybody who's read the books will see how they are cake.
