#MarchMagics and #DWJMarch

A bit late off the mark, but I wanted to send everyone to We Be Reading, where Kristen is hosting her annual celebration of Terry Pratchett and Diana Wynne Jones.

This month the read-alongs are Pratchett's Wee Free Men (discussion starting March 9) and Diana Wynne Jones' Howl's Moving Castle (discussion starting March 23). These are both ultimate comfort reads for me, so I will be happy to participate.

Also I'm going to rewatch Miyazaki's beautiful animated movie of Howl's Moving Castle.

But I think my goal this month will be to read one of the few of her books I haven't read yet (I've been saving them as little treats to myself.) Hmmm. Possibly Wild Robert.

Unfortunately, I'm behind on the reading I wanted to already have done, because I had the flu, and I was so sick I couldn't read! (That's the worst!) And of course there are all the other things I couldn't get done while I was sick. Well, even if I don't manage to reread Wee Free Men by this Saturday, I've practically memorized the thing, so I can still join the discussion!


  1. Wild Robert is really fun! I think it's one of the few that I don't own my own copy of so I may have only read it once. How is that even possible with DWJ?! ;) Enjoy your reading and I'm glad you're feeling better!

  2. Sorry you had the flu! I know what it's like to be too sick to read. I went six months without reading a single book.

    I still need to read Wee Free Men!

  3. Wild Robert is fun! It's definitely one of her lesser books, but it's charming and enjoyable. What other DWJ books have you reserved to read later?
