Still very few signs of Spring in toastland. There are some fat robins prancing on the lawn, and the days are longer. It will happen. Meanwhile, luck brought me the Tim O’Brien novel last month via the Goodwill store. I read it in one day and it’s the best thing so far in 2008. Last year was such an incredibly rich reading year. Meeting some previously unknown writers – who happen to be great – through an online reading group, has bolstered my future reads list to the extent that I shall never reach the end of it. What a great feeling, tapping into fantastic literature and enjoying a chance to talk about it. Is there anything else worth having?
