Recently, I compiled a list of books--there are so many new titles!--for Endurance News magazine, the publication of the American Endurance Rides Conference. It's in the April 2018 issue, if you want to hunt for it. If you don't, you've come to the right place. IMPORTANT:I don't recommend every book on this list! As I explained in an earlier post, not all books are suitable for all readers, and some books were obviously written by the Bad Idea Fairy. My personal favorites are marked with an *, but use your CRAAP Criteria (it's really called that) to evaluate what you read.
Most of the links lead to Amazon.com, a few go to private websites. You can also ask your local library to order books for you.
Becky emailed me a couple of weeks ago:"There's going to be a fairy festival, and they are looking for a storyteller."
Jim and I headed down to St Helens, Oregon on Friday afternoon--through ungodly traffic in Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia, over the Longview bridge to the peaceful two-lane highway running along the western bit of the Columbia River...to Becky's house!
The Festival of the Fairies is a brand new event. Ideally, the grounds would be thick with the fluttering of wings and the excited shouts of tiny fairies and their parents scampering around and enjoying the activities and artwork.
In reality, the weather (grey, wet, and dismal) ensured lots of room for takeoffs and landings.
For storytelling, though, small crowds are ideal.
A small group allows the teller (or tellers--Jim and I did several tandem stories, but of course, nobody was available to take pictures of that!)
