I hope this post finds you well and rested on this glorious Sunday morning. I have had a really busy week as the children have been off school, but they go back tomorrow, so I will hopefully get some time to myself again.
I have managed to read more books this week than of recent weeks, but I am beginning to find the books I pick a little coincidental. On Monday, I began reading Surviving The Volcano and what happens on Wednesday, an Icelandic volcano erupts bringing every airport in England to a standstill all weekend. You may just brush this off, but when I decided to read The Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger then sadly passed away the day before I published my review. I am wondering if my choice of books may be more than coincidence!
I suppose by reading about volcanoes, it has made me more knowledgeable,as now I actually know what they are talking about when they mention things like 'pyroclastic flows' and 'magma'. I have to admit being glued to the television when reports about the eruption are aired, I can't help but find the whole process of how a volcano erupts fascinating. Anyway I hope to finish Surviving the Volcano later today as I plan to review it this week to help celebrate Earth Week which starts tomorrow. I was a bit naughty yesterday, as usually I only read two books at a time, but something made me pick up The Onion Girl by Charles De Lint and now I can't put it down.I just wanted to tell you about Persephone Week which begins on the 3rd of May and runs through to the 9th of May. It is being organised by Claire over at Paperback Reader and it is worth joining in the fun if you happen to have a couple of Persephone books in your possession. I have three books that I am planning to read for Persephone Week and I hope that I manage to read all three. Claire is also running an Angela Carter month through April, so if you have any Angela Carter books you have been meaning to read then this is the time to get them out and dust them off before April moves into May.
