O.Henry's short story The Gift of the Magi.
If it is new to you, you can read it HERE. Enjoy! And I hope you all had a very Happy Christmas
Some new ones, some old ones. "The oldest books are only just out for those who have not read them." (Samuel Butler)
I read Historical Fiction, Fantasy of all kinds, especially anything involving time travel or a time-slip, and I lap up well-written contemporary Crime, Mystery and Spy stories.
I am very fussy about shoddy editing. This annoys me even more than illiterate wannabe authors thinking they can get away with no editing at all.
Which brings me to poetry. I love reading good poetry, poetry that has been worked on and crafted as an artist works on and crafts a painting or an actor works on and crafts a performance. Poetry which is a work of art.
