I don't know what's wrong with me but I'm not enjoying reading at the moment -perhaps this is more to do with the book than me, but it is unusual all the same.
Years ago I read THE FAR PAVILIONS By M.M. Kaye and really enjoyed it so when Hubby brought in a copy of TRADE WIND last month I was delighted. Only problem is, I'm finding it really hard work and am not enjoying it at all but I can't give in and admit defeat so shall carry on despite having a large pile of books looking at me, begging to be read.
Anyway, this morning a catalogue from RED HOUSE arrived, this being a book catalogue aimed mainly at children but also young adults, inside of which was an article by children's author Andy Stanton entitled "Andy Stanton highlights the importance of magical stories which captivate readers." It's a really interesting read in which the author explores "What on earth is Magical Storytelling?" To find out for yourself merely click on 'Red House' and follow the links to Featured author, Andy Stanton.
P.S. Yes, I did order some new books. Well, they are at discounted prices plus the packaging and posting is free.
-'The Gates' by John Connolly
- 'The Declaration' and 'The Resistance' both by Gemma Malley.
Combine these three with the 4 ex-library books I bought at the weekend for the bargain price of £1.50 with the already large pile waiting to be read, add in the fact that tomorrow is my book club night and I'm going to be very busy reading - if only I could finish Trade Wind.
