BOOKS AND OTHER MAGICAL OBJECTS

I discuss objects to be wary of in my Fairytales with Bite website.  Generally if you avoid lamps, rings (especially those with dodgy inscriptions) and magic carpets, you should get along just fine.

I also consider the importance of books and other literature in my This World and Others website.  I think books are magical in themselves regardless of what is actually in them.  What other object can transport you to different cultures, times, universes and so on and entertain/educate/enlighten you as it does so?

On my Facebook page, I discuss Goodreads, the Kindle and the writing tasks I’m hoping to achieve by the end of the evening.  Am so pleased the Road to Agincourt Project is sharing links to my recent Chandler’s Ford Today posts reviewing their Medieval Weekend and Ships Trail.  I hope they hold the weekend again, I’m not aware of similar events in this part of Hampshire before.  The Ships Trail is a lovely walk to the River Hamble where you are rewarded with stunning views and a glimpse at what is left of Henry V’s ship, The Grace Dieu.

Below are a couple of images I took at the Medieval Weekend and while walking the Trail.
