Power and Chaos!





A blog I decided to start, related to my love of fantasy stories - like Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Peter & Wendy, and The Chronicles of Narnia! ^_^ Home

Just got this book in the post today; I’ve been waiting over a week for it come!

It’s the “Treasury of Oz” - all 15 Oz books by L Frank Baum, collected in a single omnibus┬ávolume. :)

Does it look small in these photos? Well if it does, it’s not; must be some trick of perspective or something. Its large (about A4/standard Letter paper size), 784 pages, and it weighs quite a bit too. You can see how big it is while I was holding it in a better light for the second photo. And I’m amazed that photo wasn’t blurry, my hand was shaking a little trying to grip it and hold its weight up far enough from my face (and camera) that I could get it in shot! xD

Now I can sit back of an evening, relax, and read all of the Oz stories back to back. And I took a quick peek already, the chapters in Baum’s novels were pretty short; combined with the size of the book’s pages, most chapters are only about 2 or 3 pages long. :) Great for my shortish attention span and slow reading speed. :-P
