There's nothing like an empty piece of paper or a computer screen with its accusatory cursor blinking away to make your mind go blank. It seemed like such a cool idea to begin an "opinions" blog about books I've read. But, when suddenly do the math and realize that you read about ten books a week and you've been alive a few decades...well, that quickly becomes a pretty daunting task. So, to get my groove going I'm going to start with my all-time favorite(s). And mix in a few of my current reads.
Of course, any list of my favorites has to not only include but start off with....can you hear the drum roll in background....The Wizard of Oz series.
Other titles in the series include:
Ozma of Oz
Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz
Road to Oz
The Emerald City of Oz
The Patchwork Girl of Oz
The Scarecrow of Oz
Rinkitink in Oz
The Lost Princess of Oz
Tin Woodman of Oz
The Magic of Oz
In my opinion, every lesson to be learned, every dream to be dreamed and ever fantasy to be fullfilled was within the pages of these books. I have the entire set (far from first edition, but just as valuable to me) of Oz books, and I consider them one of my greatest assets. Not worth much on the open market, but whenever the real world gets a little TOO real, I know I can go where bluebirds fly over rainbows and troubles melt like lemondrops.
Available now for the Kindle, the entire Oz collection can be purchased for ninety five cents. Certainly the bargain of a lifetime. Click Here to purchase from Amazon.
