Journal Entry 3 by wingAzukiwing at Tampere, Pirkanmaa / Birkaland Finland on Saturday, May 11, 2024
This book caught my eyes at the book buffet. Maybe because the US don't really have fairy tales of their own. And then I noticed it's by a Georgian author, so I was totally keeping the book, as it will be very handy for my Eurovision readathon which I participate every year. Living in the US it's always a challenge to find something from the smaller countries (and there in lies the fun of the reading challenge, encouraging me to understand better the history and culture of different nations, not just the major ones I can easily fulfill the 666 challenge with).

Thanks so much for sharing! Look forward to seeing you again next year, wherever that may be... : )
