Bathtime Reading

One of my daily rituals is to read in the bath.  Now that I have retired I can do this without any feelings of guilt.  It is one of lifes' pleasures and one I look forward to every day.  I have a small clock on the window sill so I can keep an eye on the time - otherwise I would find the morning has slipped away whilst I am engrossed in the latest novel.

It has to be a novel and not a factual book and it has to be a paperback - hardbacks are too heavy and are in danger of being dropped - and there is nothing worse than a book with soggy pages.  I need to lose myself in the pages, whilst topping up with warm water and adding a soothing bath foam with a relaxing fragrance.

At the moment I am reading Hidden in Paris by Corine Gantz which I found  on her blog Hidden in France




"Lost in France, a country she mistrusts, among French people she hardly understands, Annie has trouble venturing away from home since the death of her husband.  And since home happens to be a small jewel of a house nestled in the heart of Paris, why would she ever want to?  But when bankruptcy threatens her beloved house, her one anchor in life, Annie has no choice but to find rend renters, and quick."

Does any one else revel in a soft, soapy soak in the bath with a good book?
