I'm so excited to show off my new prize possessions that I got on our trip.
My new Complete Works of William Shakespeare, purchased from his birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon. They even stamped an official bookplate into it.
I've been wanting a complete works for a long time, but I decided to wait and buy it in Stratford. I don't know what took me so long.
Now I just need to go back to the UK to pick up the places I didn't have time to visit this time: Bath or Chawton for a complete works of Jane Austen, and Haworth for the Bronte sisters.
Years ago, I bought Wuthering Heights at Haworth, but it's been read so much it finally fell apart.
To read more about the great literary places I visited, see my post at the Utah Children's Writers blog.
