The content for Issue 2 of Armadillo is now with the web editors so I am going to go and sit in the garden to enjoy the bank holiday sunshine and read a book - a new one - in preparation for an interview later this week (I shall report on it next week), I encourage you all to follow my example, take a rest, sit back with a good book and enjoy the opportunity of an extra day off. Do you need a suggestion for a good book to read? Well there is always the Branford Boase award short list with some fantastic title, among them Emily Diamand's 'Flood Child', she is a new talent to be watched. Or there is the scary 'The Toymaker' by Jeremy De Quidt, the gripping and dark 'Knife of Never Letting Go' by Patrick Ness among others. Visit the website at www.brandfordboaseaward.co.uk for more details.
Now I am off to enjoy my half term week with the large pile of books that are clamouring for my attention!
