Yep, I ask everyone! I talk a lot to begin with, so it just makes things even easier. I have a lot of people ask me about the book I am reading too. Even if I am not reading it and it is just sitting on the table near me, people ask.

[quote=""SonjaMarie""]I read most of "Haunted Harbours: Ghost Stoies of Old Nova Scotia" by Steve Vernon, 77 pages of 120 page book. The reason I didn't finish it was because the author admitted he embellished stories he had heard about ghosts or other supernatural beings and most of them really did...

I am finally reading The Heretic Queen by Michelle Moran! Just a hundred pages into it, but it is pretty good so far! I look forward to getting further into it later today.

[quote=""Ash""]Mmm, I wonder if this is anything like Emma Donogue's Kissing the Witch.[/quote]

It kind of sounds like it could be. This is a bunch of different authors, though, and it is a bit of a textbook-type book, as well as a collection of fairy tales.

Don't Bet on the Prince by Jack Zipes

There is a subtitle, something about feminist fairy tales, but I don't have the book right in front of me so I don't remember!

I am having the worst luck with historical fiction this year! I keep picking them up and putting them down because they are not capturing my attention. It's terrible! I think I need a good battle novel... Something that starts with a lot of action... It is just no the year for me and historical fict...

I don't carry a purse, just a wallet, unless I am on a trip. My friends think it is weird to see me with a purse, actually. Speaking of wallets, everytime I turn around I am breaking the change compartment zipper. I can't even get to my change right now because when I do it will break entirely, so I...

Yeah, as I said in another forum, they did it without asking. I am not sure if I want to stick with it or not yet.
