There is an infinite number of books in the world and only so much time in which to read them. We all have books and authors and series that have crossed our paths, which we've heard of, maybe been interested in but have never actively attempted to seek out.
Arthur Ransome is one of those authors for me. In particular his Swallows and Amazons series.
I've come across these books multiple times, especially in the Vintage Children's Classics collection and I think it might finally be time to discover them for myself.
They're on my radar but really I know nothing about them. I think perhaps they're adventure stories set between the world wars in England but I may be getting them confused with something else.
Next time you hear me speak of these books, I hope it will be with much more authority and practical knowledge.
How about you? Have you read any of the Swallows and Amazons series? Or perhaps something else from Arthur Ransome? How did you get on with them?
