Reading Matters

I've spent the last few days/weeks/months subsumed in Reading Matters 2007. Reading Matters is the YA literature conference that I organise with my colleague Mike Shuttleworth.

This week, we had a three-day conference of 350 delegates, 25 authors, 1300 kids and about 300 members of the general public. We talked about What Matters (more on that anon). I had the enormous privilege and pleasure of hanging out with Scott, Justine, David, Margo, Ursula and everyone else.

My head is so full of ideas and thoughts, but right now I am tired and emotional and perhaps a little drunk.

I love my job.

You organised that reading matters conference?? Oh, wow!! That is fantastic! I really wanted to go to that, but sadly-- School is a pain in the arse.

I somehow stumbled upon your bloggings by clicking on your name from Justine's blog. I got to Justine's blog by clicking on the 'jetlag' link from Scott's blog. I got there by realising that i have 5 favourite keys on my keyboard that i had yet to assign websites to. I realised this through pondering the workings of a keyboard and if they have feelings or not. And i started pondering all this because I am procrastinating from doing my Literature essay.
My name is Elizabeth..

Nice to meet you!!!

(Hope you don't much such a long and kind of pointless comment!)

Elizabeth, long and kind of pointless comments are the best.

Thanks for visiting!
