FOREWARD: BLOGGERS ON MAGIC
Whenever I find myself browsing my shelves for a pleasure read, I almost always pick a book that has an element of the fantastic. There's something magnetic about stories where the impossible is made real. As a reader, I am most delighted and thrilled to slip between the pages of a book and exchange my 8-5 life for magical wardrobes, enchanted mirrors, and maybe a dragon or two. The worlds and the magic we come across in books, whether it's wizards or vampires or fairies, give us a taste of the extraordinary and perhaps, best of all, in a jaded world, retain wonder.
