The Magical Mystery Tour--Second Stop



It's a little before 2 p.m., and I just finished reading Before Wings by Beth Goobie, book two in my 48 Hour Book Challenge. It took me twice as long as the first book. It was a little more dense, but just as good.

I've read two good books in one day. I'm living some kind of fantasy here.

I selected books that had been recommended as possible examples of magical realism for children or YAs. I don't know enough about magical realism to make any definitive judgments, but I suspect Before Wings is more of a ghost story than an example of magical realism. Or are ghost stories magical realism?

Before Wings is also very Canadian, which I enjoyed very much. Lots of references to things like Coffee Crisps and Zellers.

Now you'll have to excuse me. I haven't had a shower yet today, and I'm getting hungry again.

I knew the dofus kamas so I always try my best to earn them more and more to make myself strong. I have never played the game before, at the beginning I did not know what is so I went to kill the monsters with the kamas that I earned with myself in the game. I will duty bound to a friend to help brush the dofus gold together with my friends. I spend a good relationship is then fly to tears. If my levels are very high, I can go to buy dofus kamas more and more and I will not depend on my friends to help me to earn them. I get some cheap kamas as the gifts to encourage me.
