First of all, sorry to those who tried to visit my blog over the last 24 hours and found it missing. A failed update to wordpress software caused the issue. Unfortunately whilst I was aware if the issue, I didn’t have the opportunity to fix it until this evening.
Secondly (and even though you may spot a post in your Google Readers that says differently!) I’m not going to be able to finish up reading the Carnegie Medal nominees, before the winner is announced at the end of the month. This is down to a number of things, not least a general reading slump. But also, typically as soon as you plan to read a book, the books that do call out to be read, are not the ones you’re planning on.
Mid-slump, I’m going to go with a book that is calling out to me, and dance round the half-dozen so I’ve pulled off the shelves in the last week or so, with the hope of triggering some interest, and then left untouched somewhere.
