Just discovered a newish site called Inkling. Have any of you guys checked it out? It’s supposed to be a better way to use your textbooks.
Check out the features page here.
“There are no longer simple tales with quests and beasts and happy endings. The quests lack clarity of goal or path. The beasts take different forms and are difficulty to recognize for what they are. And there are never really endings, happy or otherwise. Things keep overlapping and blur, your story is part of your sister’s story is part of many other stories, and there in no telling where any of them may lead. Good and evil are a great deal more complex than a princess and a dragon, or a wolf and a scarlet-clad little girl. And is not the dragon the hero of his own story? Is not the wolf simply acting as a wolf should act? Though perhaps it is a singular wolf who goes to such lengths as to dress as a grandmother to toy with its prey.”
-The Night Circus (Erin Morgenstern)
I really, really want to see this show but the tickets are crazy expensive. Why do shows have to be so expensive? Don’t they realize that I don’t have a lot of extra spending money but thoroughly enjoyed the book and the Hitchcock film and therefore need to complete a literary trifecta?
April has come and gone, and I’m five books closer to my goal.
Favorite book for April: I’d say it’s a tie between “The Golden Compass” and “The Subtle Knife”.
I’m already nearing how many books I finished last year and we’re only 1/3 of the way done with the year. This makes me a happy camper.
How is everyone else doing with their challenge?
