Wild Reads, a project launched in collaboration with Suffolk Libraries and Suffolk Wildlife Trust to inspire and ignite a love of nature in readers, have announced their featured book of the moment.
Their current favourite read for this month is Thinking on My Feet by Kate Humble.
Thinking on My Feet tells the story of Kate's walking year - shining a light on the benefits of this simple activity. Kate's inspiring narrative not only records her walks (and runs) throughout a single year, but also charts her feelings and impressions throughout - capturing the perspectives that only a journey on foot allows - and shares the outcomes: a problem solved, a mood lifted, an idea or opportunity borne.
As she explores the reasons why we walk - whether for creative energy, challenge and pleasure, or therapeutic benefits, Kate's reflections and insights will encourage, motivate and spur readers into action. Also featured are Kate's walks with others who have discovered the magical, soothing effect of putting one foot in front of the other.
You can reserve a copy of this title on our catalogue.
The previous selected Wild Read title was Nature Cure by Richard Mabey, which explores the author's move to the open flatlands of Norfolk due to declining mental health - and how nature inspired him to write again.
