Usually, being deserted somewhere isn’t something that most people would call fun, enjoyable, or an escape.
It’s a whole different ballgame when you’re talking about books.
When I read, I don’t have to worry about the incessant troubles of life like bills bothering the crud out of me. Instead, I experience an imaginary world formed by the will of an author. Whether that world has something to do with a wizard weaving spells out of thin air, a detective solving the unsolvable, or an insurgency trying to overthrow a totalitarian government. The world of books is infinite, and it’s in this month where its expansive corridors are surveyed.
Because March is National Reading Month.
The mere thought of browsing through my kindle library gives me goosebumps! I have collected an assortment of books over the past years, some of which I haven’t read past the first chapter. But, in light of the national event, I (and I hope you will too) will commit to a book this month. In fact, I’ve chosen to go with Brian Rathbone’s Call of the Herald. It’s the first book in his series that I started to read earlier this year but was too distracted to finish it all the way through. By the time I finish this novel you can expect a review on it towards the end of the month (if I stay on schedule).
Well that’s my monthly plan but lets talk about YOU:
What are you planning on (or are) reading this month and what drew your attention to it? Do you have any reading suggestions? Tell me about in the comments.

I’m just about to start reading the autobiography of the boxer Errol Christie – No Place to Hide: How I put the black in the Union Jack. It’s not only about his career in the ring but his standing up to the racism he suffered growing up in Coventry in the seventies and eighties and the work he does for young people now.
If you’re at a loose end you could always read my book, Me & Gus on the Roof of the World – shameless plug there 🙂
Lol, no problem about the shameless plug. I’ll remember it when I need something new to read. 🙂
The autobiography sounds like a good read, hope it turns out good for you!
Thanks, all my reviews have been really good.
I’m looking forward to reading it as Errol Christie came from near where I was brought up and I was a fan of his when I was a kid.
