Canterbury Tales my choice for summer reading fare

Undertaking Canterbury Tales as part of my summer reading experience.

The medieval collection of stories about pilgrims, from various lots in life, on their way to Canterbury has amused readers for centuries.

Written by Geoffrey Chaucer, who had a superb command of language, ironic sense of humour and ability to empathize with people from all walks of life, Canterbury Tales wasn’t finished before his death.

Although I studied it in university, I’m anxious to engage with these characters again.

What is your favourite tale from the collection?

Your summer reading choices this year?

  1. A friend gave me all of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels. I’m reading them in order. Not much to them – Tripwire had plot holes so big an aircraft carrier could fly through. A bit of fluff for the summer, but after the third book, they’re starting to be repetitive.
