Twitter is perhaps a wonderful thing? It tells me that Nicki is reading The Sword and the Circle for World Book Day. She twitted: 5 of 5 stars to The Saxon Settler by Rosemary Sutcliff. I have been urging people to read The Eagle of the Ninth for the day! If you use twitter, search under #worldbookday and see @shanaqui as well as @rsutcliff .
