On having finished Swallows and Amazons...

If there's any better place to have been reading that than out in hurricane weather, it was sitting in a tiny tea-shop in the pouring rain while eating a scone so hot that it nearly scorched my fingers.

Reading these old YA novels only on my commute seems to be just the thing. I think I shall continue. I'm checking out The Eagle of the Ninth today to tide me over. Now it's time to see if I can find a library that will loan me Swallowdale- neither the school library nor the local one has it. Meanwhile, my flist needs to help me out!

Should I wait for them to send me Swallowdale, or should I start right in on the third book of the series (Peter Duck: A Treasure Hunt in the Caribbees) without waiting?

Read Peter Duck. You never cared about series order last time you were reading YA! Besides, Pirates! That's more sort of *guidelines* anyway.

It's important for explorers on a new coastline to be thourough and methodical and keep everything in order. Or you're apt to end up like poor Captain Scott.

(I'm nearly always Titty, but sometimes John and sometimes Peggy, and when I'm feeling particularly Nativish, sometimes Susan or Roger. But I'm nearly never Nancy, for I'm sadly quite ruthful usually. My sister's maybe John but sometimes Nancy and sometimes Peggy or Titty - but you ought to make her read them and ask her. Actually, frey_at_last, I *really* think that you four and us two need to rent two sailboats on a lake and go play Swallows and Amazons some summer.)
