My reading this month began slowly, partly due to a change in my reading habits influenced by my online book buying ban. Due to two Kindle blips in March I’ll be continuing my ban into April.
I attended the first day of the Daunt Books Festival, organised by fellow book blogger Emily, on the 27th of March. Unfortunately I couldn’t stay in London for the next day’s events, but I had a wonderful time listening to all the talks. I took many a note and will be writing a post on the talks I attending next week. In the mean time this is a picture from the second talk, Bright Young Novelists.

In other news:
My local Waterstones (Brighton) have two events this month, Harlan Coben and Dawn O’Porter – I’m not usually one for author events, but I know the work of these authors so I may attend both.
The London Book Fair is also on, 8/9/10th April.
How was your March?
