“ One of us will just have to stay at the cottage to keep an eye on her.' [...] Let's see if Widow Hazel wouldn't take her in during the day, maybe teach her something useful -' No, remember when she learned how to knit? Now we're stuck wearing these dreadful hats.' Not so loud! She'll hear you.' In a lower voice one of the dwarfs said, 'H.A.T.S.' Apparently Snow White didn't know how to knit or to spell. ...more ”

[close] Ever get the feeling that, as you're reading a book, it somehow doesn't really seem to be that particular book that you were secretly looking for? That underneath the mountain of books you've read, your underlying quest, whether you even knew it or not, was to find a book, or a series of books that truly took your imagination and eloped with it beyond the hills of expectation, leading you by the hand into unchartered realms of pure ecstacy of discovery? I do not promise you that you will find what you seek here, but, if, in your reading journey, you have accumulated a grassland of fertile ideas ricocheting off the insides of your mind, then this is the palce to share them. Originality is not dead, and old, tired genres and character types can be manipulated by those who desire to do so. Perhaps together, we can find that story we have each of us wanted to read, or write.
