Oh wow, that concert sounds amazing as I love classical music! I never get the chance to see it performed live any more though.

Looking forward to seeing what you think of the Fables stories, I'm up to #9 and enjoying them a lot :)

Happy reading and watching!

Fables and Bone! Woot!
You have a lot of great books here! I hope you enjoy them.

Bookish, the concert was lovely. I'm already wanting to go to another one - a showing of Disney's Fantasia with live music.

I have read a couple of other Fables books and enjoyed them hugely. I was led to them through the Sandman Presents books.

Beth, yes indeed. Looking forward to reading them.

Sounds like a great concert! And The Hobbit appendixes... that reminds me, i haven't seen those movies yet. I saw the beginning of the first one and then something came up and I never saw the rest! I need to get on that.

I did read some of the Bone stuff and liked them a lot. I should re- read and finish the story.

Concert sounds great. While not a graphic novels reader really I know Bone was popular amongst some of my students when I was teaching.
