To Shoot or Not to Shoot

I shoot arrows, mess around in the garden, feed the birds and walk the hills.

The Book of Ash

The Book of Ash - James Flint Picked this up in a charity shop just days before the Iceland volcano grounded European airspace (April 2010) with ash.... so reading it under clear skies (no vapour trails for the first time I could remember)and read it with a special resonance. January 2011 the artist James Acord whose stories inspired the book dies by his own hand and a year after reading it the whole nuclear situation is thrown into focus after the Tsunami damages the Fukishima power plant in Japan. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and nearly bought another one in the best bookshop in the world (Scarthin Books, Cromford) but do I dare? Perhaps if I made a wooden cover, or only read it sitting in a wooden chair.....

Read the book again with massive enjoyment even though I knew the plot. And ordered Habitus from the 'Abebooks' second hand site. Looking forward to reading it.
