Here's a meme I saw Danielle and Kate do this week, and it is intriguing to look back at this time of year, so I'll give it a go also. The purpose of this one is to post the first lines from each month's first post, and see what results.
January: Audrey Thomas' Graven Images is one of those books that just appeared in my collection somehow; I was intrigued enough to read it, even though I'd never heard of it.
February: I've somehow watched three British literary adaptations in the last week or so; could explain why I haven't been posting here or even catching up on my various Challenge books!
March: Here is a meme I found posted by Bookfool.
April: Ah, April. It's enchanting, and what better way to enjoy it than through poetry?
May: As I was just mentioning a few posts back, writer Yann Martel is sending our Prime Minister a book every two weeks, hoping that he may read one and gain some appreciation of what the arts can do in our lives.
June: Hi all; it's a busy week for me here.
July: My recent reading of Frances Itani's new book has got me thinking about all the Canadian novels I've read featuring older women looking back at their lives.
August: Due to popular demand, here is one of my favourite foods to eat, explained.
September: I've just heard with sadness the news of Madeleine L'Engle's death. (Sept. 6, 2007)
October: I am sorry that I've been away from my blog for a while; family things happen that require one's full attention.
November: This is the latest collection of short stories by Canadian literary doyenne P.K. Page.
December: After much beginning and re-beginning, after putting this book on a couple of Challenge lists(Carl's RIP II, my personal Polar Reading list), I have FINALLY finished reading this 102 page novella.
Hmm, very strange, I seem to be fond of making excuses for not posting. And when I do post it's all about my reading (except my wild and crazy foray into food in August...) A few challenges make their appearance, as well as another meme. A pretty accurate overview of the year's writing, spookily enough.
