Journal Entry 1 by AngelofMusic from Portland, Oregon USA on Sunday, October 31, 2004

9 out of 10

I first read this book as required reading for an online literature course. I loved it. I have read this book outloud, marked in it with green highlighter and black ink, gotten the pages dirty from reading under a maple tree with my horses, et cetera. I have loved this book well, and it's kinda hard for me to part with it. My only consolation is that whoever recieves this next will love and enjoy this tale of honor and hope as well as I have!

Angel of Music

"The world is God's, He allows a man to grow famous, and his family rich, gives him land and towns to rule and delight in, lets his kingdowm reach as far as the world runs - and who in human unwisdom, in the middle of such power, remembers that it all will end, and too soon? Prosperity, prosperity, prosperity: nothing troubles him, no sickness, not passing time, no sorrows, no sudden war breaking out of nowhere, but all the world turns when he spins it. How can he tell when he sins?" (From Beowulf)

Het boek zou via mij naar Castricum en is daar nooit gekomen, maar bij mij blijven hangen... :-)

Binnenkort reist het verder naar OBCZGouda.

I was supposed to take the book to Castricum, but I never got there. The book is still with me! It will most likely be placed in OBCZGouda soon.

Having read your entries: I think I'll keep it for a while on Mt. TBR, it's a classic after all, maybe I should read it before crossing it ;-)
