We all know that I will read anything but even I hadn't thought about reading the sky until I started the new Breakfast Serial in Sunday's Centre Daily Times. Jamie, the main character, not only sees images in the clouds, he sees entire stories. Right then, I started watching the sky and it has been especially beautiful this week. (okay, yes, it was blue and white and we know what that means). But, WOW, there were the biggest fluffiest clouds I have ever seen! My response to that was to pick up a couple of cloud books from the library. Then, reading the news, I saw that the Cloud Appreciation Society (http://cloudappreciationsociety.org/
) was thinking there should be a new cloud category. (http://cloudappreciationsociety.org/june-09/
). So, clouds are everywhere this month.
If you are looking for something to read, here are some "cloud" books. A new title is The Theory of Clouds
by Stephane Audeguy, which chronicles the search for the fabled Abercrombi Protocol, the only copy of a mythical cloud catalog. Mage of Clouds
by S.L. Farrell is the second in a fantasy series called Cloudmages. Sara Donati wrote Lake in the Clouds
, an historical novel following the lives of the Bonner family in the early 1800's. If you like mysteries, try Clouds without Rain
, an Ohio Amish Mystery by P.L. Gaus. In all of these books, it is interesting to find out what the title means and how clouds relate to the stories in different ways.
Read often and everywhere.
