Scottish Summer Reading Challenge

There's a new tab on my blog - hurray! - for the Scottish Summer Reading Challenge. The page says it all, but it's essentially a few months of reading books by Scottish writers. There are some great authors running around in this country, and they probably don't get quite the recognition and the love that they deserve, and so the Scottish Summer Reading Challenge was born!

I'm really excited about this challenge and, Scottish reader and writer that I am, even I have some catching up to do! I have Alasdair Gray's Lanark to read, I haven't read any James Kelman, and I really need to get to grips with some Christopher Brookmyre. That's my plan of action, so I'll be going to the Tam O Shanter option of 7+ books (so called because it's the longest!).

Gallus, brilliant, magic. Cannae wait!
