I borrowed this book from the library for some research on my upcoming novel. I loved it! Funny, educational and extremely enjoyable read!
Dianne liked a quote
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
“I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books. As a result you are already too old for fairy tales, and by the time it is printed and bound you will be older still. But some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. You can then take it down from some upper shelf, dust it, and tell me what you think of it. I shall probably be too deaf to hear, and too old to understand a word you say, but I shall still be your affectionate Godfather, C. S. Lewis.”
C.S. Lewis

“Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turn, then to go forward does not get you any nearer.
If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”

Love the sea. I really do need to start updating my book shelf. Some of the more recent books I read are missing.

Ivan Stoikov - Allan Bard Hi! Thanks for the add! Nice shelf, books! Will be glad to share some recommendations, tips, etc in the future! Best wishes! Let the wonderful noise of the sea always sounds in your ears! (as my water dragons' hunters would greet - my Tale Of The Rock Pieces).


Dianne Thank you!

Hazel West Well, I can't live without writing ;) Historical fantasy is kind of a new favorite genre of mine. I'm working on a steampunk novel at the moment which I guess is more alternate history than fantasy, but still really fun.


Dianne Ditto here! I've wanted to delve into historical fantasy. I actually have a fantasy novel written inspired by a historical event. It won't be published until 2013, but it's one of my favorite stories that I've written. Anyway, I'd love to talk to you about it. You have a lot of work out! Impressive!

Hazel West Thanks for the friend invite! I look forward to exchanging recommendations and stuff with you =)
