That's what I love about doing these [In reply to] Can't Post

chapters in sections. You really do just stop and get into each part of the story. In a way, being so well written that I know I start cranking along and miss those subtlties :) Reading outloud... I haven't done that in a while! GREAT IDEA!

I have my g'kiddies coming for a couple of weeks this summer. I think we need to each grab a copy and take turns reading!! ;)


sample

"There is more in you of good than you know, child of the kindly West."
~Hug like a hobbit!~ "In my heaven..."

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.
