Fairy Tale Tabs 10/17/2012

Is your computer overrun by tabs? Mine is. All the time. Eventually I either:

a) finish and close them
b) give up and close them
c) bookmark them hardly ever to return to them
d) have a computer freeze and lose them.

There are other scenarios, too, but those are the most common. So I am thinking about starting a new regular feature on the blog of rounding up my fairy tale related tabs and sharing them here. Many of these will be links to other blog posts, short news bits and other miscellaneous stuff. Then you can decide if you want to click through yourself.

So here are tabs from the last few days:

I wrote about the book yesterday, but here's a review at The Enchanted Inkpot for Two and Twenty Dark Tales: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes.

At Spinning Straw Into Gold, there is a discussion of two different Little Mermaid poems, "The Mermaid Loses Her Voice" by Jeannine Hall Gailey and "The Mermaid Sets the Story Straight" by Debra Cash. There is also a post sharing "Nina Faces Reality" by Alex Schattner.

At Tales of Faerie, there is Jerry Griswold on Frog Prince and Fairy tale retellings and subgenres.

At Something to Read for the Train, there is Baba Yaga Returns to Poughkeepsie.


  1. Tabs, oh yes. At least 16 this morning, usually a few more (2 being surlalune and 2 from Enidicott studio). Sometimes I have different windows open to keep my tabs separate. Say 2 windows with 15 tabs each. If Firefox crashes it will bring at least one window of tabs back. When the tab feature came out 5? years ago I knew someone was thinking of me.

  2. This is a great idea! Thanks for sharing :) xx
