After a little bit of feedback Can't Post

Hi Guys

I haven't been around too much lately, owing to a brain explosion fit of madness me deciding to return to University TongueWink

Anyhow, this coming semester one of my units is Fantasy Literature for Children, and I will be discussing with my classmates a variety of fantasy books (sadly none by Tolkien, but hey, can't have everything) and I was wondering if it would be okay or even welcome to post some of the topics we're covering each week in Off Topic. The books we'll be studying are: The Classic Fairy Tales, The Dark is Rising, The Wizard of Earthsea, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Tom's Midnight Garden, Northern Lights (or the Golden Compass for our American cousins) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Must say, it's so good to have a unit where I can go to my bookshelf and just grab the books WinkLaugh

Quite okay if no-one is interested Smile

*hugs, love & blessings*

I like that idea! [In reply to] Can't Post

Some of the books you've listed are others' favorites, and I think they'd enjoy a discussion of them! Smile

Sounds interesting! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'll be glad to submit obtuse observations and nonsense non-sequiturs.


And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him.
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.

Welcome back, Kel! [In reply to] Can't Post

So nice to see you hear! I also think it's a great idea. I haven't read some of those books and I''d love to learn more about them. Thanks for suggesting it. Smile

Do you think [In reply to] Can't Post

I should include the Fairy Tales bit? I had a look through the weekly modules and we're actually discussing different versions of three particular tales, so people would need that textbook. The others are just the regular novels, so a bit easier to access.

Thanks for the feedback dernie, Darkstone and Altaira Heart
