Going on hols, no blogging

I'm off to Turkey on Monday for a weeks holiday, although it won't be restful in the physical sense. As I'm easily bored we found Neilson Beach holidays* a few years ago and they are just the thing for me - I start the day with a water ski, then sail and finally a bike ride about 4pm. The evenings are better as it is like being at a dinner party with friends every night, the only problem is that nobody wants to be seen as a free loader so the wine flows a little too freely sometimes!

Despite all that I still manage to get some reading done. This year my summer reading is:

Vince Flynn, Protect & Defend - Good escapist nonsense of the Jack Bauer/24 variety.

Michael Ridpath, Se No Evil - e used to write good thrillers which had some educational stuff about how the City and finance work, but he has gone off the boil a bit

PS I might be squeezing a couple of more posts in today and tomorrow if I can find the time

*The first advertising on this blog and its free!
The Undercover Economist - A good friend and former fellow Director who now teaches business and economics at A Level swears by this book. I've picked it up a couple of times when staying with him and decided I need to read it

Freakonomics - Another god friend and former fellow Director is always banging on about this so again I thought its time to read it

Hayek, The road To Serfdom - Tim Worstall recommended this when I was chatting to him at the "Curbing the Crap Artists" event at the ASI

So, even if there was the ability to blog while I'm away I just won't have time. I wish you all happy reading while I'm away and hope you find plenty of entertaining and educational blogs to read, and if you do, pass them on.

Blogging while on holiday - very difficult balancing act! As I said over at Philip Thomas.
