Readathons are my favourite athons!
Oh, mine too, Jay! 🤣
Woohoo, looking forward to this month!
Love the leek peeking out amongst the Welsh emblems 🙂 potato and leek is my favourite soup.
Thank you so much for the plug, Gretchen. I’ve linked to it above.
Ooh yes, potato and leek soup – now you’re talking! 😋
Here is my review for The Rising of the Lark by Ann Moray
As I say in my review, I wish I weren’t caught up in the Fiona Griffiths crime series. However, I see I have never written a full review of any of them so maybe there is time for a reread and review later in the month as I would really like more people to discover these books.
Thank you so much, Constance for your lovely post. I have linked to it from the main Wales Readathon 2021 page. 😀
I’m still catching up on the fact that it’s already March! This time last year I was reading Dafyyd Johnston’s The Literature of Wales. Can’t believe it is has been a year already…and at the same time it feels like ten.
I agree, Chris. It really doesn’t feel like twelve months since the last Dewithon – not to mention the start of all the pandemic madness. What a year! 🥴
the link to Rebecca’s Reading Room seems to be broken
Many thanks for letting me know, Karen. I have asked Rebecca for the correct address.
Ooh, this is exciting!
Please feel free to join in the fun! 😀
Here’s my review for On the Red Hill, hope I’m letting you know in the right place! https://librofulltime.wordpress.com/2021/03/27/book-review-mike-parker-on-the-red-hill-dewithon21/
Great stuff! Thank you, Liz. 😊
