Full Moon Tonight

Last night amidst the clouds, I saw the moon -- almost full. Go howl at it tonight and go here for a fantastic giveaway from Nan Marino, author of Neil Armstrong Is My Uncle and Other Lies Muscle Man McGinty Told Me.
I can't believe I have not yet read this book and it's been out a whole year already. Wah! There simply isn't enough time to read all the good books in this world. But aren't we lucky? When I was growing up, I was allowed to choose four books every month at the British Council Library. Four. I'd read them in a week and then read my sister's books. I even read my mother's stash. I still remember reading Lady Chatterley's Lover by D. H. Lawrence and Of Human Bondage by Somerset Maugham. Most of it went over my head. But sometimes I'm surprised at how much seeped into my soul.

Thanks so much for the post, Vijaya. I feel I know you through the blueboards. I agree with you about what happens to the books you read when you are very young. They do have a way of seeping into your soul.

Nan, I bet both my kiddos will love your book, so we'll be checking it out ...

I've gotten to know so many wonderful writers through the Blueboards. It's truly my tea hangout and more.
