Reading Away the Days

The sharp-eyed among you may have noticed the somewhat eye-catching, flowery and very non-Third Pig banner currently decorating the top of the blog.  Reading Away the Days is a month long children's books event hosted on Megan McDade's book blog, Reading Away the Days.  All through September she'll have interviews, giveaways, articles, reviews and compos so it'll be well worth dipping your toes into.

I'll be interviewed on the site on September 12th and I'll be answering questions, among others,  on Harry Pigg, my own influences and encouraging kids to read.  Promises to be good fun so drop in and say hello.

A Nice Write Up

Somehow or another I had missed this article in The Sunday Business Post when it appeared in July.  It's short but pointed and I like the reference to engaging boys in reading - which is something I do feel strongly about (next post will also reference this).


Apologies for quality of the scan; I suspect the scanner bed needs a good clean.
