I haven’t done one of these in a while, so I thought why not run one now?
This giveaway is for a print book (I know, right?) called We’re All Going To Die Tomorrow: A Guidebook for the End of the World & A Compendium of the Many Ways in which we are totally Doomed. Which is the best title ever.
A (mostly) satirical book on the current End Times craze. We examine everything from the 2012 Mayan Calendar end-date to the Rapture with snarky and occasionally inspirational commentary. Makes the perfect gift for paranoid End Times fanatics.
**Note: Some potty-language, not for kids.**
This book actually was pretty funny. If this is something that interests you, enter the giveaway!
So I have, unfortunately, succumbed to a nasty virus that’s knocked me out and rendered me unable to do anything but lie on the couch (or my bed) and stare blankly at things. Sadly, this means that I don’t quite have the current concentration to write any book reviews, which is annoying me to no end.
So, unfortunately, no book review today. Instead, how about a book discussion? Or, well, a genre discussion.
Okay, let me explain. In the last twenty-four hours of blahness, I’ve caught up on my episodes of Once Upon a Time — you know, the fairy tale series that airs on ABC. I quite like the show, since it combines all sorts of fairy tale characters into one setting.
So let’s talk fairy tales. What makes them so popular? What about fairy tale retellings? Are they a good idea or bad idea? What’s your favorite fairy tale and retelling?
