I'm back from a long vacation. I did manage to check email and the blog occasionally, but without my own computer, it was somewhat sporadic. I did manage to read - and finish - "The Book of Story Beginnings". I really enjoyed it. Some thoughtful concepts about the life your story characters led before you wrote them into your story and the life they will lead after your story is over. Its a great adventure/mystery/magic book. I have to print a sticker for the inside, but its otherwise available for anyone to read. Let me know if you're interested and we can arrange a meeting. I'm curious to know where the books are - but I could probably live until school started again before finding out. I hope everyone is getting a chance to read a couple of really really great books this summer. I'm currently reading "Tale of Despereaux" because I saw a movie preview for it and thought I should get it read before that came out. I'd also like to finish "The Calder Game" but I can wait until the books come back for that. Keep up the reading.
