It's Friday, and if it had come any later, I'd be a puddle of goo at my desk right now. However, I hope your week was pleasant, and your weekend is even moreso!
So let's get down to business: I just read "Fables: 1001 Nights of Snowfall," by Bill Willingham, with art by Charles Vess, Brian Bolland, (breath), John Bolton, Michael Wm. Kaluta, James Jean, Tara McPherson, (breath), Derek Kirk Kim, Esao Andrews, Mark Buckingham, Mark Wheatley and Jill Thompson. Whew!
It's actually a series of graphic novels, with reimagined fairy tales. This one focuses on 1001 Arabian Nights, with Snow White sent to Arabia as an ambassador from the Fables community, and kept as a doomed prisoner by the jilted sultan. It's gruesome but gorgeous, which is how the best ones are these days.
But back to important matters: the giveaway! Congratulations, Amy, you're this week's Freebie Friday winner. We hope you enjoy "In Praise of Doubt."
Next week, you could be the proud owner of Deborah Tannen's "You Were Always Mom's Favorite!: Sisters in Conversation Throughout their Lives." Tannen interviewed hundreds of women while researching the complex relationships between siblings, and if it's anything like her previous best-seller, "You're Wearing That?", it'll be plenty entertaining.
So give me your weekly book reviews! And by the way, I'm going to the Bahamas week after next, so I'll need plenty of ideas for what to download onto my Kindle!
