Sunday Salon- Earth Hour, a Day Late

March 29, 2009

I completely forgot that last night was supposed to be Earth Hour from 8:30 to 9:30. I think I was even doing something gratuitously electronic, like watching TV or working on the website update at the time.
So, I, umm… had Earth Hour this morning? Me, a book, sunlight streaming in (gray skies can be surprisingly bright)
All electronics and their power strips switched off or unplugged. I’m reading “Forever” by Pete Hamill, a book I’ve had on my TBR pile for ages, and I love it. Mythical, magical, Irish. (Hamill’s prose has the cadences of a fairy tale, told with a brogue. Going to have to remember that phrase, to use when I review it here!)

So yes, I missed out on the official point of Earth Hour… but I tried. And reading in bed on a Sunday is always, always good.

    Not just good. Reading in bed is the best! And I know the Irish must have served you well this morning.

    Today I am reading The Post Office Girl and loving it. Highly recommend it!
