Monday Madness: Sinbad the Sailor
Monday Madness is a new bookish meme hosted by Booklover's Teaparty and Bookfever.
You know that feeling when you feel like you are gonna go mad if you do not get a certain book right away, when you are obsessed and all you want is that one book and you will be happy? That is what Monday Madness is about. All those books you that drive you mad.
Pick a book. Talk about it- why do you want it? What has drawn you to it? Why is it making you mad with want for it?
Sinbad the Sailor
'The valley was full of snakes and serpents as big as palm trees, so huge that they could have swallowed any elephant that met them.' A selection of fantastic and perilous adventures at sea from the Thousand and One Nights. Introducing Little Black Classics: 80 books for Penguin's 80th birthday. Little Black Classics celebrate the huge range and diversity of Penguin Classics, with books from around the world and across many centuries. They take us from a balloon ride over Victorian London to a garden of blossom in Japan, from Tierra del Fuego to 16th-century California and the Russian steppe. Here are stories lyrical and savage; poems epic and intimate; essays satirical and inspirational; and ideas that have shaped the lives of millions.
I recently re-watched the animated movie Sinbad, haven't seen it since I was a kid, and I just remembered why I loved it so much as a kid. Really amazing and then of course I see this beauty on Book depo and thought right away "I must have it!". That little sword on there.. adorable. Besides really need to get myself a collection of the penguin little black classics so seems like a great place to start with this one.
