When Chris Townsend reached the summit of Ben Hope in Sutherland, he walked his way into the record books. After 118 days in which he had covered more than 1,700 miles and climbed over 575,000 feet, he had completed the first single continuous journey of all 277 Munros and 240 Tops in the Scottish Highlands.

Juliet in August is an interesting prize-winning debut by Canadian author Dianne Warren. It follows the intersecting lives of residents of Juliet, a small town in saskatchewan, for a few days in August.

If you're tired of the artificial excitement of thrillers and mysteries then relax with the quiet, compelling reality of Juliet in August.
