I just came back from one of my favorite places in the world! What is it about libraries and bookstores that give me butterflies?
My library already had issues one through five of Bill Willingham’s masterpiece series Fables, but for some reason didn’t have the rest. I asked my library to order the rest of the series and they said yes! Now volumes six through eleven are on their way. I also put the beginning of the series on hold so I can reread it. For some reason I received volumes one, seven, and eleven. Hopefully I’ll receive the rest of the series before I have to return the books.
I’m an English/Anthropology major and I love fairy tales. So when I saw The Hungry Clothes and other Jewish Folktales, I had to check it out. Can you believe I’ve never read Peter Pan? My family loves the various movie versions of this book, so it’s our newest family read. I’m reading Exit Wounds for the Graphic Novel Challenge. I’m also in a short story mood, so I had to check out Yiyun Li’s A Thousand Years of Good Prayers before I read her latest Vagrants.
What have you checked out from the library lately?
