I've read a couple more books that I want to mention to you --
I listened to an audiobook of The Lives of Christopher Chant as a (bajillionth time) reread. We talked about bad covers just the other day and I didn't include this one because I went with "so-bad-they're-strangely-good" but this one from the audiobook is "so-bad-it-hurts-my-brain". It's obviously supposed to be The Place Between but this Christopher is just so 1990 (I bet that's a silk shirt!) and the fonts are awful! But please, don't let this affect your desire to pick up this book. It's the second of the Chrestomanci books but I think you could start with it if you happened to see it. It introduces you to Christopher and Millie and Tacroy and, best of all, Throgmorten (the cat).
And finally, I just finished listening to Nation, which is probably now one of my favorite books of all time. I absolutely loved this book. I didn't actually expect to even read this book right now but it was available on audio and I needed something to start on my walk. I loved the Victorian-ness of the story even though it takes place in a parallel world. I loved Mau and Daphne and all of the other characters. I loved spending the entire length of a book on an island. And Pratchett's thoughts on science and religion are so similar to mine that I couldn't help but love him more after reading this. I think that's it's marketed as a YA book but that's probably because it has teenage protagonists. I don't see any difference in thought and language level between this and his adult books.
With just eleven days left in March, do you still have a DWJ or Pratchett book you want to start?
(Also, don't forget the Dark Lord of Derkholm read-along discussion will be on Thursday!)
Reading and rereading and rereading again,
