As You Wish

When I was your age, television was called books.

I find it inconceivable (yeah, I went there) that we'd never heard anything about this book until last week. To quote Tray, because she's one of my favorite people to quote...and just one of my favorite people period:

I read [the] review [of The Princess Bride] and found it astonishingly hard to believe: “Whether you liked the film adaptation or hated it, read this book! It’s the the Spinal Tap of fairy tales, and it’s much funnier on paper.” I L.O.V.E the film adaptation, so this comment felt like a challenge, and well, I’m up for one. Gotta see if it’s true.

How 'bout we all find out together? With tax day looming, April seems like the perfect month for a lighter book club selection, so The Princess Bride it is. This may be a bit of a quirky pick.  What can I say?  We're versatile girls.  I'm pretty sure this charmer has got something for everyone--Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, and miracles. 

*Oh, and don't fret, next week we'll review Girl at War
