Recently Finished (and Recommended)

The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum

Obviously I'm on a young kids fairy tales sort of kick after seeing Alice in Wonderland. I still need to read the original book. But I think I'll wait until employee discount week. Until then, I satisfied myself with the world of Munchkins, witches, and silver shoes. This is one of the 9 books I ended up buying during a buy 2, get 1 free event with B&N Classics. That's right - 9. But it was fun and a really easy read. I had it finished in just a few hours. It's always neat to see how the book differs from the movie and there were plenty of differences. So many, in fact, if they were to remake the movie to follow the book more closely, I wouldn't be opposed at all. Not the way I felt before reading the book. Either way, indulge yourself. Be a kid again and see what Baum's world really is like.
