September/9月 (ku-gatsu): Welcome fall/aki!

September heralds the end of a truly sweltering summer, and kids head back to school on September 1, give or take a day! It's also time for Bunka-sai (culture festivals) and various sports days (this month and next). Harvest festivals, Moon Viewing (Tsukimi) and typhoons are also "highlights" of the month. But, before all that starts, I've got to get my high schooler to finish his summer homework...eek!

I've always been fascinated by King Arthur and Merlin so I loved it. I especially liked it from Merlin's perspective which is rare as usually Arthur takes center stage. I put off reading it for years, though now I can't remember why. Now I have to read the other three in the series which I've also had for years.


message 40: by Sandra, Kindle Operator Licence Required (new)

Sandra | 23887 comments Yay! I gave it 4 stars as well. It was a really different take on the Melin/Arthur tales. I remember really liking it so I bought a copy once I started working.
