Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

The Secret Life of the Owl
What I love about going to the local bookshop, or indeed any bookshop, is to find a book that just makes sense for me to read, even though I had no idea of its existence. It is something akin to a reader's fate. So when I went a week ago I stumbled on The Secret Life of the Owl and decided to buy it right away. As my readers know I love owls. I find them beautiful and mysterious. But I know fairly little about them, so I decided this was a great opportunity to actually learn about them. So I have been reading this for the last week, among other books I read. I love it. It does get slightly gross when it talks of pellets, but this is an aspect I need to know about too. I hope to share my new knowledge of owls, whether it is their biology or their significance in mythology and literature, in future posts.
