“Finally listening to what the voice was saying, not with her words, but with the spaces in between them, where a different meaning was revealed.” – Lee Battersby Magrit

I read YA and anything illustrated

I’m passionate about beautifully designed books and the space between word and image.

This blog started as a record of my PhD research on teenagers’ reading and graphic novels. Since I finished my thesis I blog about the books I read, although there has been a long hiatus. Hopefully I will continue to remember reading is breathing. The dog likes to help when he can.
