Mythical.

As we well know, mythical characters are the back bone to any great myth. There are gods and monsters, demons and angles all waiting for when we start to read one of these old stories. They come in all shapes and sizes and who better to but together a top ten list than Neil Gaiman. The author of American Gods, Anansi Boys, The Graveyard Book and many more let's us have a glimpse inside his mind as he shares his favorite mythical characters.

Star Wars Reads Day.

This week I offered extra credit to anyone who could tell me what October 5 was.

I had a wide range from Saturday to General Conference (which was correct but not what I was looking for).


It's Star Wars Reads Day!!!

I hope you all take advantage of this holiday and read a good book in the Star Wars spirit--or in costume!

"For the trouble with the real folk of Faerie is that they do not always look like what they are; and they put on the pride and beauty that we would fain wear ourselves."-J.R.R. Tolkien, On Fairy-Stories

10 pounds.

"It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife."-Jane Austen


Beginning in 2017 Jane Austen will be featured on the 10 pound note! The notes will include a picture of Elizabeth Bennet; an image of Godmersham Park which was owned by Austen's brother; and a picture of Austen's writing table.
