Next Book

The next book is The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle. This was Laurie's choice, and will be held at her house on February 25. Short book for a short month!

Last Unicorn synopsis as follows:

The Unicorn lived in a lilac wood, and she lived all alone... Thirty years ago, Peter S. Beagle entered the delicate heart and mind of a unicorn who learns one day that "I am the only unicorn there is." Readers young and old were utterly enchanted by The Last Unicorn, and, with each generation, Beagle's beloved novel grew in popularity and stature to become one of the world's all-time fantasy classics. Here, then, is the enduring tale of the last unicorn's quest for life and love... of the bumbling magician and indomitable woman who shared her dream... and of the special magic that burns deep within every heart.

Also, thanks to Dana for hosting us for The Kite Runner. Please feel free to contribute your thoughts on that book here in blog form.
