This was my last month of trying only to read books I already have in the house, and I cheated a little bit. Kristen’s March Magics review made me curious to reread the one DWJ book I don’t own, so I got it from the library. And my son was pleading for more Freddy the Pig books so I went to the library again, and then read one myself, infected by his enthusiasm.
But otherwise I have done pretty well. The imminent prospect of moving will probably squash any desire to buy more books, though the library is another matter. I’ve been piling up my wish list there!
What’s on your own wish list this month?
- I reviewed three books by Terrence Real that helped me understand gender relations in a whole new way.
- Helen Keller’s autobiography, The Story of My Life, was inspiring and sometimes surprising.
Other Books Read
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling – Reread
- House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones – Reread

Other Features and Events
- I announced my intention to do some kind of event celebrating Robertson Davies, a favorite author who deserves more attention. Details coming soon!
- On my other blog, I posted on the themes It’s not the end of the world and Letting go.
- I started another chapter-a-day reading challenge, hoping to get through Part II of Don Quixote in company with Emma of Words and Peace.
