book group ::

a friend of mine brought the 1book140 twitter book club to my attention last week. Mainly, I expect, because the first book on the reading list is by my all time favourite author, Margaret Atwood. The book itself is 'The Blind Assassin' which won the booker prize in 2000.

I first read it back when I was at university, not long after it was published, I loved it. It's such a clever book, I cannot wait to give it another reading.

I just hope I actually find the time to get through it, since having Milo I've managed to read a grand total of 2 books. I used to read continually, constantly and with so much joy, I really hope I can rediscover that.

  1. Love Margaret Atwood, but I suspect I would struggle to re-read her bigger books due to the lack of time. On the upside I discovered so many wonderful kids authors and illustrators thanks to my daughter. If it wasn't for CraftSanity podcast I would "read" much fewer books.
