Short Story Saturday - A New Project

A definitive sourcebook of folk tales and fairy tales and the first of its kind to feature a variety of multicultural heroines, this book of 100 stories celebrates strong female heroines across time and space.
I bought this book on a whim quite a while ago, but just never got around to reading it. When it turned out that both Amy and I owned it, we decided that we should divide it up into sections and read it together. We were going to start today, but I sort of lost track of time. So, instead we are introducing the new project. I am really excited about this collection overall, so I look forward to exploring all the different stories included.

As it stands right now, we will read 12 stories for next Saturday. Then, we will answer questions on our blogs about the stories. It is essentially the same idea as my current read-along with Carl of the Charles de Lint collection. Hopefully you will join us as we explore stories of women from all over the world.

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
