Fairytales

Published March 5, 2012 by caitlinnicoll

Exciting news in the land of fairies and tales! A collection of 500! NEW! fairytales collected by Franz Xaver von Schönwerth have been recently uncovered in Germany. Franz was a contemporary of the Grimm brothers, and combed the countryside for decades, painstakingly collecting these tales for our enjoyment. Sadly, due to disinterest, they were archived instead. But no longer!

I LOVE fairytales.

What are some of your favorite tales?

Some of mine include the Little Mermaid, the Stork Wife, the Snow Queen, Rapunzel, and Cinderella.

In other news, how is everyone doing with their reading challenges? the second half of February was kind of slow for me in that I only managed a couple of books.

I’m participating in the A to Z challenge this year. Which I’m kinda excited about. I have a theme planned, but I don’t want to say what it is in case I change my mind. I can be fickle like that.
