Recommended: The Book Nook

The 'Book Nook'The 'Book Nook'

A good book on a camping trip is a joy in itself - the slow pace of an afternoon with nowhere else to be, basking on the beach, curled up and cosy on a rainy day, or to while away the journey hours. 

I love that with the turn of a page I can either be learning a valuable new skill or be transported to another world entirely! AND the trusty book doesn't require replacement batteries or a generator (Kindles excluded of course though they're extremely efficient!). Even at home, between camping adventures, a good book is a wonderful thing to indulge in.

For all my love alas, there just isn't room for a library on board Waki, but I do have what I call 'the nook' stuffed full to bursting with reference and note books! The novels I read I pass immediately on to friends or charity shops so they don't stay on board for long...
