Blog Friday

I wrote a song for the Hop:

If you walk like a frog
You're doing the Hop
If your socks come in ones
You're doing the Hop
If you stepped on a stone
That cut right to the bone
And you're bleeding profusely all over your clothes --

You're doing the Hop.

You can't say I never do anything for you.I hope you are all very grateful indeed.

This week at Learning To Read has mainly been about SOS -- Summer Of Strangers. That's the name for my resolution to spend my summer in the company of authors I've never read before, and it has so far has been something of a success. We've had Peter Stafford at the New English Library, and the glorious Christopher Brookmyre.

There has also been a piece of trivia.

Coming up soon are some more SOS reads (anybody heard of Sean Dixon?), maybe some more trivia, and a week without blogging because I'm away at the Treehouse Festival.

See you around!
