March is the month for us to dive into the magical world of Fantastica, where unforgettable creatures live and an unseen hero arises to save the day!
We have provided a guideline for you to read during the month, but it is only a suggestion. You can read at your own pace and please feel free to post and discuss whenever you are ready. It doesn't matter if it is every week or by the end of the month, simply share your insights about the book. We would love to read them and discuss them with you!
Our guideline is the following:
1-8 March: Prologue – Chapter 5: The Gnomics
9-16 March: Chapter 6: The Three Magic Gates – Chapter 12: The Old Man of the Wandering Mountain
17-23 March: Chapter 13: Perilin, the Night Forest – Chapter 19: The Traveling Companions
24-31 March: Chapter 20: The Seeing Hand – Chapter 26: The Water of Life
In The Neverending Story by Michael Ende, fantasy and reality merge into so many unexpected ways. Imagine you are reading a story and suddenly you realize the characters are talking about you. How can that be possible? And what if your reality is not a happy one and you desperately want to be part of the story you are reading, become part of that fantasy? Intrigued? Bastian was! And if you want to know more, March is the perfect opportunity to find out by joining our Monthly Book Discussion!
If you are inspired by this story, let your imagination run wild and share with us your fanfiction work in Quill and Ink, or your artistic interpretations posting in Ink Splatters. We will be very happy to see your work!
