I am going to take a little break from authonomy. I am so utterly exhausted by all that is going on in my life I just can't give it the time it needs at the moment...and we all know it needs a lot of time!
I will leave my books up as I know a few people who'd still like to read them.
If I have promised to do a read-swap I am very sorry, I will try to make it up to all of you by backing your books at least before I collapse...
Just for the record - before Clara sinks into obscurity, the highest she got in the chart was 188...!
Good luck all you great writers out there, and many thanks for all your useful comments.
PS. Special message for 6C - hope you enjoy it! Let me know what you think...
PPS. I'm going to leave on my shelf the books I consider to be the best ones I've read on authonomy so far.
Children's novels: Journey to the River Sea by Eva Ibbotson, the BFG by Roald Dahl (fantastic for reading aloud), Mouse Noses on Toast by Daren King, The Chronicles of Narnia, Clarice Bean Spells Trouble by Lauren Child.
Picture books: Julia Donaldson has to be the queen of all picture book writers so everything she's written is brilliant, but my favourite of all of hers is The Snail and the Whale. other favourites; The Whales' Song by Dyan Sheldon and Gary Blythe, Cinderella, an Art Deco Love Story, by Lynn Roberts and David Roberts, Me and My Cat? by Satoshi Kitamura, The Story of the Little Mole Who Knew it was None of his Business by Werner Holzwarth and Wolf Erlbruch.
Adult Novels: Love in the time of Cholera, Perfume, Rebecca, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Pigeon, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, The Tunnel, Small Island, The Poisonwood Bible...I could go on, and on...
