During November we read A Spell for Chameleon by Piers Anthony. I will admit that I did not read this month, although I have read and enjoyed this book in the past. Hey, don’t give me that look, College comes first, I only have a Semester and a week between me and graduation. So for anyone who did go visit Xanth, I do hope that you enjoyed Anthony’s peninsula of puns. For those who could not find the time to read, here is the book description from Goodreads.
“Xanth was the enchanted land where magic ruled – where every citizen had a special spell only he could cast. It was a land of centaurs and dragons and basilisks.
For Bink of North Village, however, Xanth was no fairy tale. He alone had no magic. And unless he got some – and got some fast! – he would be exiled. Forever!
But the Good Magician Humfrey was convinced that Bink did indeed have magic. In fact, both Beauregard the genie and the magic wall chart insisted that Bink had magic. Magic as powerful as any possessed by the King or by Good Magician Humfrey – or even by the Evil Magician Trent
Be that as it may, no one could fathom the nature of Bink’s very special magic. Bink was in despair. This was even worse than having no magic at all..and he would still be exiled!”
Next month a journey with the Dragon Lady, Anne McCaffery!
Until we meet again, May God Hold you in the palm of His Hand,
