Welcome March!

Is March coming in like a lamb or a lion where you are?  Strong winds have been blowing around my home for several days now.  Perhaps March is historically windy.  When I was a little girl in grade school, the arrival of March guaranteed an art class in which we made kites.  Which reminds me that it's fun to fly kites, and maybe I'll get around to doing that this month as we segue into spring.

What I am definitely getting around to in March is reading Roberto Bolano's novel, 2666.  Here is a link to Janet Maslin's 2008 review of the book in the New York Times.  Maslin found the book "mesmerizing"; I think it will be challenging to read.  March seems like the perfect month to take it on, this final work by the Chilean author and poet who died in 2003.

Good Night, Night Circus

March is also the time to tell you that after months of having the book, I've only gotten through 82 pages of The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.  I am not going any further with it.  Many people love this book, but the story just doesn't appeal to me.  That's the way it goes with books and art.

What do you plan to read during the blustery days of March?  Let us know in the comments below!
