Getting Around

Welcome to Sally's book-a-day-for-2017 blog. If unfamiliar with the blog, scroll down.

Getting Around (1997) Post 180

Getting Around is a little non-fiction book published, coincidentally, by the Momentum line. It's a simple narrative about travelling, by walking, running, hopping etc. It moves to swimming, rowing and paddling, takes in bikes, skates and wheelchairs and segues into unicycles and stilts before continuing with riding (animals), sliding and skiing, ballooning, flying, trains, and driving. It's surprising just how many ways there are of getting around. I didn't add the Segway or space rocket... one wasn't really known in 1997 and I suppose the other isn't in reach of most people. Who knows; in another fifty years all bets might be off.

About the Blog 

Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 is to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. If you enjoyed a post, or want to ask about any of my books or my manuscript assessment service, leave me a message.
