Where are you going to #escape with your reading in May

Reading in May is about escape.

Where do you escape in your reading? Do you escape into what you are reading? Do you escape because of where you are reading? Do you read to escape from what else is happening around you? What is your greatest reading escape?

Your great reading escape may be reading about amazing landscapes which you would like to escape to, or at least imagine escaping to. It may be about escaping from work, escaping into other people’s memoirs, or escaping into great meals. It may be game related reading (or reading within games), it may be gaol break inspired reading or many other ways of reading about escape.


When you are enjoying your escape reading, you might like to tweet using #NYR12 so that other people can have a conversation with you about your reading.

There will be a live twitter discussion 29 May starting at 8.00pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. Use the tag #NYR12 as you discuss your reading which is an escape.

    That last pic just reminded me of Douglas Kennedy’s ‘The Dead Heart’ and he is visiting our local bookshop here in Aix in June. For May, not sure, perhaps a biography and some nature essays just to blend and balance, just received a couple of wonderful books by Kathleen Jamie, ‘Findings’ and ‘Sightlines’ said to be ‘a sorceress of the essay form’ an escape to nature.
