Amusing account of Stewart’s life in Las Alpujarras, Spain. I loved the contrast with his time sheep shearing in Sweden.

Received in the post 3 days ago from Chocbrownie. Just taken out of "quarantine" due to the coronavirus. I will very much look forward to reading the book after having enjoyed Driving Over Lemons by the same author. Thanks very much.

REVIEW:-"Although I did enjoy this book I didn't think it was as good as the original one "Driving Over Lemons". However it was interesting to read of Chris' exploits both in Sweden and in Spain. I particularly liked the very unusual swimming pool and would love one like it but I doubt I'd be able to fit one into my garden."
Passing the book on to my husband as I think he will probably like it.

My husband has just finished this book and comments as follows:-"A light-hearted insight into life in a part of Spain far away from the tourist areas. It reminded me of the sort of people that Ben Fogle comes into contact with on his TV programme 'Life in the Wild'."
Reserving the book now for Snoopy56 as I can't remember whether she said she wanted it or not. Will ask her again. She has read Driving Over Lemons.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Looking forward to reading this as i really enjoyed Driving over Lemons. I would also recommend Three Ways to Capsize a Boat.

I enjoyed this just as much as Driving Over Lemons so now looking forward to the next book - The Almond Blossom Appreciation Society. I would love to visit this area of Spain someday.
