One of our favourite outings is to spend a couple of hours at the local library and that’s where Brendan and I spent yesterday afternoon. It’s simple, educational and frugal, so we try to go at least a couple of times a month. I’ll check out a couple of books and then we’ll grab a comfortable armchair and while away the day reading as many magazines as we like. There’s no need to hurry and when we’ve had enough, we jump on our bikes and coast home.
Here’s what I have checked out for the month. It’s probably a little ambitious to think I’m going to get through them all, but I’ll give it a try.

- Enough: Why the World’s Poorest Starve in an Age of Plenty. by Roger Thurow
