Shakespeare light

 I selected the book, A Stage Full of Shakespeare Stories by Angela McAllister to provide a prompt for several of my challenges.  These were a little bent in their intentions but since the year was ending and I am not a huge reader of plays and classics I decided to go this route.  I am resolving myself to read a few classics next year and to not procrastinate til Dec to do so.

The book was an enjoyable refresher for plays I had read and a nice overview of the plots for ones I had not read previously.  It is a great book for sharing Shakespeare with younger readers as well.   Very nice illustrations in the book too.
