Baum’s Wizard of Oz

I’ll try to keep this baby free today, other than to say he has been sleeping very well and I may even start to do some writing again. Fingers crossed!

I will tell you about the book I’m reading. I’m reading The Wizard of Oz, the classic by Frank L. Baum. I downloaded a copy of the book a few months ago, from I don’t remember where, and I’d figure I’d give it a go. So far it has been a pleasant read.

I’m about 30 pages in and have found some differences from the movie already. For example, the shoes Dorothy wears in the book are silver, not the iconic Ruby Red from the movie. My wife tells me they made that change in the movie to show off “Technicolor”.

Also, Glenda in the book is described as “tiny” although it also mentions she is not a munchkin.

Anyhow, I’m enjoying it so far. If I like it I’ll have plenty more to read as there were 13 sequels.
