“WHEN DID YOU REALIZE READING WAS YOUR PASSION AND A TRULY IMPORTANT PART OF YOUR LIFE?"
As a child, I used to absolutely love read my parents' old battered copies of Enid Blyton's 'Malorie Towers' and Tolkien's 'The Hobbit'. Even then I knew books were special. I used to read them everywhere...including in the car, which my sister claimed was crazy because reading in the car made her feel sick! Go figure?!
This week’s Follow Friday question, hosted by Parajunkee is:
"IN LIGHT OF THE SUMMER SOLSTICE, ALSO KNOWN AS MIDSUMMER...LET'S TALK ABOUT FAIRIES. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE FAIRY TALE OR STORY THAT REVOLVES AROUND THE FAE?"
When I was little I loved it when my mum read the Brothers Grimm to me at night. My favourite fairy tale was 'The Worn Out Dancing Shoes' about 12 princesses whose shoes were worn out every morning. The King offered any man who could discover where his daughters were going at night the hand in marriage of any of the princesses. Needless to say, there is a soldier looking to solve the mystery and gain a princesses' hand in marriage, and 12 princesses determined to keep their secret...
If you want to read it, you can find it here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
