Impressions from the reading life
R – Ruppelt, Lars: This is a German poetry slam performer. I recently bought an audiobook of his, and listening to it, collapsed on the kitchen floor laughing.
O – Ozeki, Ruth: I read A Tale for the Time Being last April and instantly fell in love.
Y – Yeats, William Butler: His poems are full of myth and melancholy (okay, sometimes folly).
G – Germain, Sylvie: This sadly obscure writer published the most magical family saga ever, including a man with a golden shadow.
B – Barrie, James Matthew: If you don't know how much I adore Peter Pan, you don't know anything about me.
I – Ibbotson, Eva: The Secret of Platform 13 inspired J.K. Rowlings' platform 9 3/4. An entertaining childrens book.
V – Verne, Jules: If you have never tried any book by M. Verne, what are you doing?
I should call this a nightly readathon, I always seem to end up doing all the reading at night. Again, things went not as expected, so that I'm currently hardly done with chapter one of my book. But I'm off to bed now, and that means I'll finally have some comfy reading time before I lull off and wake up to a new round of cirque du chaos which is my life right now.
See you tomorrow with more daily life madness and hopefully some reading.
