Reading!

I do read. I really do! I just haven't posted about it in a while. I'm currently reading Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie.
It's very exciting and beautifully written. I'm guessing that's why it's a classic.

Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"Wake up," she cried, "Peter Pan has come and he is to teach us to fly." (pg. 32)

"I want their captain, Peter Pan. 'Twas he cut off my arm." He brandished the hook threateningly. "I've waited long to shake his hand with this. Oh, I'll tear him!" (pg. 56)

Then all went on their knees, and holding out their arms cried, "O Wendy lady, be our mother." (pg 68)

"If you believe," he shouted to them, "clap your hands; don't let Tink die." (pg. 118)

That, is good stuff.



I have to go now...my favorite corner of the house is waiting for me.

I love that book! Have you read the one about how he first becomes Peter Pan? I can't remember the name, but it's really good!

You can tell a true classic by the fact that all ages enjoy it.

Morgan - That one is called Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. Yes, it's a delight.

I also recommend this one, if you have not seen it:
