I have the word “Slammerkin” scribbled on several post-it notes on my desk and in my purse. “Slammerkin” is the subject of 3 drafts in my email. I even have a blog post titled “Slammerkin” in my blog drafts that has been there for over a year. And yet, for the life of me, I couldn’t remember what any of it meant or was supposed to remind me to do. For several minutes, I thought it was a word I had made up and couldn’t remember the definition for (this has happened to me enough time for this to be a pretty reasonable conclusion). Is “Slammerkin” my “Bad Wolf”? (Don’t Dr. Who references make you happy? They make me so happy). BUT what it really is, is a book. A book that I now remember almost everyone I talk to about recommending a book tells me I should read. And yet, I haven’t. But now I will because “Slammerkin”.
Have any of you read it? Thoughts? (On anything really I would happily discuss the Dr. Who reference if you haven’t read Slammerkin).
