DWJ March Kickoff

My dad's photo of a tulip tree.
It's March!  I hope you are getting some spring where you are; here, it is my favorite time of year.  The first signs of spring here are daffodils and early-blooming trees--different varieties of early fruit trees, tulip trees, and most especially the almond orchards.  (Tulip trees are a kind of magnolia with pink or white flowers that bloom before the leaves show up; they are all over town and they're spectacular.)

And since it's March, it's DWJ month!  Kristen M at We Be Reading is hosting, and she'll have guest posts every Tuesday and Thursday.  Watch for mine on the 7th!  There will also be giveaways; I'll keep you posted on those.

Kristen is hosting TWO readalongs.   Howl's Moving Castle starts on the 15th and will feature a watchalong of the Miyazaki film on Twitter.  Check her post for details and keep in mind the tag #howlalong.  A Tale of Time City starts on the 29th so we can finish the month in style.

I'm all excited; I get to share some DWJ love and it's spring!

Yay! I could not be more excited about this month. I love hearing people talk about how great Diana Wynne Jones is.
