DWJ March!!

Everybody!  It's that time of year!  When we read Diana Wynne Jones and talk about her a lot!  Oh, I just love DWJ March.  As always, Kristen at We Be Reading is hosting, and she has scheduled out something for every single day.  Plus she is good at Twitter, so there is a hashtag #dwjmarch and has made something called a Tagboard that I cannot quite figure out how to use properly but it is neat.

New button!

There will be two readalongs, one of Enchanted Glass and one for the happy people who have been able to get their hands on The Islands of Chaldea, DWJ's final novel which has been released in the UK, but not anywhere else yet.  I won't be able to get it until late April, but we might do another one then....

I am so, so happy to have you joining me again! I am pleasantly surprised that my 31 days of prompts isn't intimidating people as much as I worried it would. Of course, I should have remembered that DWJ fans are awesome!

I will definitely count you as vote one for an April read-along of Chaldea. :)

I'm happy that you keep doing it! I hope I'll be able to post as much as I would *like* to. Pre-writing a few now...

Hahahaha, I couldn't be more excited for this. I cannot wait to read everyone's posts! Especially the Islands of Chaldea posts -- I'm so curious what that book's going to be like.
