Blast from the Past: Charles Perrault’s Fairy Tales

Winter/Spring 2006
“Though it takes care to show respect and kindness of your own accord, more often than you might expect kindness brings its own reward.”

“This tale is not so very fanciful for what’s true once is true forever. Those we love are always beautiful. Those we love are always clever.”

“Suffering brings out the best and the worst in everyone. When hard times put us to the test, we learn if we are weak or strong.”

“It’s better to suffer than to do wrong; sometimes suffering makes you strong.”


Blast from the Past is a weekly post I write that focuses on a book I read long before I ever had a blog about books. While I didn’t “book blog” until a couple of years ago, I’ve kept a reading journal of sorts for about 6 years. Blast from the Past is essentially just my way of digitalizing my old book journals–and reminding me what I thought of books long since read. I think it will be a fun way to look at how my reading selections have changed and what I like most in the books I read.
