“We don’t need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They’re always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.” — Lloyd Alexander
The Norwegian Lundehund. A particularly rare and interesting dog, some scientists suggest it has survived from before the last Ice Age. Originating in Norway around the 1500's they were primarily used for hunting Puffins along the Arctic coast. It can bend its head backwards along it's own spine and turn it's forelegs to the side at a 90 degree angle-like human arms. The Lundehund is also poly-dactyl (6 toes, rather than 4) giving it added agility for hunting birds along sheer cliffs.
Following the ceremony, guests were greeted by bookcases filled with a beautiful array of fabric covered books in complimentary floral patterns and ticking stripes that we had gathered. No two books were the same which added an element of surprise and an additional conversation piece for the guests! On the spine of the books read the guest's names and the title escorted them to their tables.
