Jaynthi's : Grimm's Fairy Tales by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm.
Revisiting childhood stories from the brothers grimm. Sometimes you just feel like you want to be a little kid again. Am discovering some tales for the first time. The brothers collected a lot of stories but it's nice to read something beyond the mainstream Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty etc.
Am actually re-reading the stories. Its really good for kids for teaching parables but also enjoyable for adults too if you like fanstasy stories or you just want to feel like a kid again. Plus there are loads of lesser known fairy tales included in the book.
Reading "My Antonia" for the first time since college for our book club on Thursday night. I have been looking forward all day to coming home to this lovely novel.
"As I looked about me I felt that the grass was the country, as the water is the sea. The red of the grass made all the great prairie the color of wine-stains, or of certain seaweeds when they are first washed up. And there was so much motion in it; the whole country seemed, somehow, to be running." #willacather#myantonia#bookclub
