The winner of last week's HERE LIES BRIDGET is...
Congrats Abby! Email me at muchlanguage (at) gmail (dot) com.
In light of what happened here, in Japan, I'll be donating 200 yen (about $2 USD) per entrant, so please spread the word.
So, I've been reading a little differently of late. YA classics and women's fic. The first of the YA classics that I read was WHAT KATY DID.
What I didn't like:
It's an old classic. So it follows a lot of the old norms. It's a bit preachy sometimes, and there is way too much description (especially for non-visual me), and it's way slower than what we're used to.
What I did like:
It's an old classic. There's something about it that makes you kind of feel like you're curled up at a storyteller's feet. And I liked the theme: What Katy Did is a story about being responsible and grown up even when you don't want to. I'm an adult, and I sometimes feel very much like Katy.
Because of the special circumstances, you don't need to be a follower to enter today.
This contest is open internationally.
To enter, tell me what's your fave children's classic.
You've got until Wednesday 11.59 as per usual.
Don't forget I'm donating 200 yen per entry. Spread the word.
