hilary


highlights include: a collection of colored fairy books, several books on Irish history and folk tales, Irish language, A history of the crusades called Through Arab Eyes, the Hebrew Goddess, selected plays by George Bernard Shaw, Nietzche, Jung, Norton's Anthology, The Druids, Tom Robbins' books....books on sex, dreaming, handicrafts, anatomy, alternative health, botany, ancient mystery cults, and a piece or two by CS Lewis because he has good advice on avoiding temptation ;). All have survived the culls of '04, '07, and previous years and date back to before college. This is one of 8 filled bookshelves in our possession. ;)
Hey, it's better than collecting cardboard boxes....

Tom Robbins.... haven't thought about him in years, but he had an immense impact on my life. He's one of my heroes. I think I may need to revisit Jitterbug Perfume.

Indisputably the best of a fabulous crop is JP. If I had to pick a religion it would be the one surrounded by the place from which Tom Robbins draws his tales. I aspire to spread a deeper cheer when I read him. ;)
