I am still working my way through The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters and The Forgotten Beasts of Eld. I’ve started a re-read of ‘Salem’s Lot as part of my own personal challenge for this year.

I also managed to finish a really fascinating non-fiction book, Last Days of Glory by Tony Rennell which covers the period immediately before and after the death of Queen Victoria in 1901; I thoroughly enjoyed this and read it in two sittings.

Only one new book arrived this week:

  • Stonemouth by Iain Banks – “welcome to Stonemouth, home to a five-mile beach, gangsters, lost love and a suspension bridge”, and which has served to point out to me the backlog of Banksian reading that I have chosen to ignore

So far sticking to my embargo but still have a book token from my birthday to spend which I shall treat as an exception.

And I signed up for the 24 Hour Readathon on 21 April; looking forward to it very much.
