Happy Midsummer Night! Just a brief post to say that I've finished Carl's Once Upon a Time Challenge, even though I've done a poor job of writing about the books. (I have been a very lazy blogger this year.)
I read Doctor Faustus for my folklore selection; Pedro Paramo for fantasy; Gilgamesh for mythology, and The Ladies of Grace Adieu for fairy tale; and per Carl's suggestion, A Midsummer Night's Dream, which I was happy to finally get around to reading.
We leave early tomorrow for ALA in DC and a performance of Hamlet at the Shakespeare Theatre. I'm packing only one book--Jonis Agee's latest--but hoping to come home with many more.
See you all the middle of next week!
