Book gluttony

I have a note in my calendar that I’m supposed to be prepping for the Wales Readathon that starts next month. Paula Bardell-Hedley is hosting this event at her blog, Book Jotter, (check here for an extensive list of recommended books).

I vaguely remember promising to consider taking part. I should be done with my Tolkienerdity (© Lizzie Ross 2019) by March 1st, so why not?

I’m still thinking about which book/s, in addition to Paula’s read-along — W. H. Davies’ The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp — to feature on my blog. I’m leaning towards Anthony Bailey’s travelog A Walk Through Wales, but other possibilities tempt me: Richard Llewellyn’s How Green Was My Valley, Lloyd Alexander’s Prydain Chronicles, or perhaps even T. H. White’s The Once and Future King. I’ve a hunger for fat novels this year, so I may just pile all of them on my plate.

    Beware of book gluttony and fat novels. Almost sure to result in a gain in weight — of knowledge.

    I’d planned to reread LOTR later in the year as part of my pattern of revisiting it every ten years or so, possibly beginning around midsummer, but we’ll see! Glad you’re thinking of joining in Dewithon–I thought I might look again at a tour around Wales, but not recently, instead the one undertaken by Gerald of Wales in the 12th century!

  6. I am still looking for another book to read in addition to The Autobiography of a Super-Tramp, which I am looking forward to. Since I am in the middle of Anna Karenina, a slimmer volume might be a better idea for me!
