Welcome to my blog.  My name is Martin Galway  I am currently an English adviser and I work across Hertfordshire in the main, but increasingly further afield.  Brave new worlds and all that.

I generally obsess over books (and the teaching of reading and writing) on twitter, at conferences and events, and via my employer’s blog (Herts for Learning English).  I have that morbid fear that I will never read all the books that I want, or need to in my lifetime but I am trying my damnedest.

I’ve set this blog up because I wanted to talk about books and films in ways that might not suit a company blog.  When we get right down to it, Kate DiCamillo is to blame.
