Blogs, like all things, must one day die. Maybe even more than most things, actually. I have really enjoyed writing here, and connecting with those of you who read the posts, emailed in requests, commented. It has been a pleasure, one that came upon me unexpectedly. But now my kids are reading Joyce (not happily, alas) and Puar (I'd never heard of her either), and I am no longer reading along with them. I still love a good children's book, and it was a privilege to delve into them here. I thank any and all of you who happen by here on your way through the wilds of the internet. Thank you for making it fun, for telling me about Terry Prachett, for posing interesting questions and offering other readers your truly amazing suggestions.
I will, as they say, just leave this here.
