I cannot believe that November is almost over, and with it, the year! It's really got me thinking forward and starting to plan my reading for the coming year. Ever since I went to the Omaha Lit Fest in September, I've been thinking a lot about fairy tales and how I could incorporate them into my reading. Should I read a book of fairy tales every month? Should I even read straight through a book or only read a story at a time? Should I read as many different versions of the same story as I can find? And just how many fairy tale books are there? I was pretty sure I already knew that there were a lot of books available after listening to the panelists at the Lit Fest but a quick trip to my local Border's Book Store settled the question. I came away with a long list of books I want and I'm finding new resources almost daily. Which means that even if I read a book a week, leaving almost no time for anything else, it would take more than a year to read everything out there. So I settled on a more drawn out, long term solution.
Beginning this week I'm going to be starting a new feature on my blog titled "Fairy Tale Fridays." Every Friday I'll be discussing fairy tales in some way; I may review a whole book, I may talk about only one story, I may discuss a particular author or a new resource I have found. If you're also interested in fairy tales and would like to do a fairy tale post on Fridays, I've created a couple of buttons you can use, located in my side bar. I hope you enjoy the new feature!
