Lots About Books, a Bit About Sunshine

In the sky the other night AFTER FIVE O' CLOCK were actual rosy traces of sun. Spring is just that much closer than I imagined ...

I have been reading "The Poison Apples" by Lily Archer -- not really marvelous literature but definitely such good fun that I can hardly stop myself reading it. It was a book that did not get to me in time for review last year. Shame, really, that I could not review such a fun book.

On the other hand, I will indeed have a review in VOYA next month -- 'tis definitely a novel to read, especially if you love fantasy.

William and I just finished reading Coraline by Neil Gaiman. Coraline is one of my favorite books to read aloud, and Will loved it loved it loved it.

(It's wonderful but not for adults who are, shall we say ... faint of heart.)

I think I need to rest now. The total lack of sunshine today has made me ...

Goodness gracious. Some sun just prodded through the window as I was typing that.


I think I feel more awake now.
