Literary Life: July in Review

I’ve had a lovely month. Books, birthday, wedding, I feel invigorated (even with a horrible cold).

Unfortunately, I just haven’t wanted to blog this month and, for the most part, writing anything here has been a struggle. I’m hoping that August will see me interested once more, although I suspect it will take the temperature to drop and the nights to darken before I am.

If you came to this post via the home page, you’ll have noticed a floating Yoda, it took me far too long to realise how he did it. Can you tell me?

Currently Reading:

Cat’s Eye by Margaret Atwood
The Odyssey by Homer
Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson

  1. I could not figure out how floating Yoda did it, but I looked it up and was aided by diagrams to understand. That’s neat! I love street performers as long as they never ever try to interact with me because then I get nervous and do not know how to react.

    Happy August! (nearly)


    1. I don’t like it when they interact with me either, I don’t know what to do. Luckily I was (mostly) ignored.

      H was stood on a platform that went through the arm πŸ™‚


  2. I *did* know how they did it, but have forgotten. Literary Relish’s answer rings a bell. I was going to ask you about Paper Towns when I saw it in City Books. What did you think?
