A retelling of Beauty and the Beast and an exploration of the use of fairy tales in children's psychology. So excited. Somehow she knew that I've been reeeeeally into fairy tales lately and I love folk tale theory!


I read that book about fairy tale psychology for my term paper a few years back, very interesting! I  have a few other books llike that which I absolutley loove!

I liked Rose Daughter, but Beauty was better.  If you haven't read either, I'd start with Beauty.  My favorite teacher had us read Bettleheim's The Uses of Enchantment in her 9th grade English class.  You'll never look at a beanstalk the same way again.   Grin

p.s. An image of the spine of the book is on the back of the tee where the wearer's spine would be  Wink

*late* posting... sorry, but the awsome awsome book I got from webdreamy was _Holidays on Ice_ by David Sedaris.  She also sent me a neat handmade/ scrapbooky book mark, which the husband promptly stole and has hidden in a book somewhere in this apartment and David Sedaris's A Very Special CHristmas on CD which we listened to while putting up our tree.  Love it all, what a good way to get in the mood for CHristmas!

I sooo want to read everything in this swap!  Everyone picked such interesting books and made such awesome stuff.  If only I had more time to read and didn't have to clean the house or play Santa!

fadeawaydream, have you heard from starsix at all? i have no idea if she's recieved from me and i'm starting to worry.

anyway, i posted a while back that i'd recieved from her and was going to wait till she'd recieved to post what i got but i figured i'll let everyone know anyway. i got Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel and a couple of lovely handmade bookmarks. it's very different from anything i normally read which is always interesting. can't wait till exams are over so i can really get into it.

Clan of the Cave Bear is an amazing book. I haven't read it in 15 years, but I did read it over and over back in the day. There are more books in the series, so if you like it there are many more Alya stories to read.

Reading Clan of the Cave Bear totally caused, or at least coincided with, my sexual awakening. I was like, "wait, what's going on? What, you can write about that? Oh my, why does it make me feel all funny?"

Sorry, probably TMI. But the book holds a soft spot in my heart.
