As National Story Telling week draws to a close, I wanted to share with you my children telling me their very one made up stories.
This evening, I am going to continue in my celebration of literature but veering away for one briefest moment to talk about adaptions. Ah yes, I hear you cry but how is this related to literature. Well. I think a good film or tv adaption can still tell a good story, and it may tell a story to someone whom might not ever had the chance to read a book, and sometimes it may encourage people to read the original book/script/poem that inspired those adaptions. As much as I love a good book, and you all should know by now, I really do. I am also not ashamed to admit I do like a good bit of tv too.

Pride and Prejudice is one of those such things. The more books I read, (sequels, based on, spinoffs), or tv mini series or films I see, the more I fall in love with the characters and love the original even more.

So kicked off my competition and today I chose a winner, I cannot wait to hear from them and share my book with them.

I am not usually one for all of that New Year, New Start business, not because I don’t believe it’s good thing but because if
