Seasonal Reading – Guest Post by Jaq D Hawkins…
So here we are in September and most of my book groups have chosen ‘Back To School’ as the theme of the month. Again.
Back To School.
My daughter is an adult now and hasn’t presented me with grandchildren yet, although my stepsons have both become fathers this year. The relevant point being that school terms don’t affect my life beyond avoiding the roads twice a day during school run times and being aware of when the plague spawn, er, I mean school children are likely to be in the supermarket.
I quite enjoy reading holiday themed books for Halloween and Christmas, but there are many readers out here who don’t have school age children, just as there are many non-Americans who feel no connection to Thanksgiving or the fourth of July.
