Re: Book Bout - Which Fictional Artifact most Intrigues You?

An alethiometer resembles a golden compass or pocket watch with 36 symbols around the edge. There are six known alethiometers in existence, so it is a rare artifact. Only a handful of peopl...

Florean Fortescue's Ice Cream Parlour - Word Cubes

As an expert in ice cream, Florean Fortescue likes to sample all different varieties of ice cream from all over the world. The labels on his most recent shipment was hit by the mixing charm used to make his famous sundaes. See if you can help him figure out what each carton contains. https://i.imgur...

Re: Book Bout - Books as Travel Companions

I almost always ensure that I have a book with me when I travel. It doesn't matter if it is a train ride to New York City, a six hour drive to Vermont, or a three hour flight to Texas. I usually grab whatever I am reading at the moment. Though for day trips to NYC, I do try to choose a paperback boo...

Re: Book Bout - Exploring worlds and universes

I've been trying to choose a world or universe and I keep coming back to the Enchanted Forest from The Enchanted Forest Chronicles by Patricia C. Wrede. It is one of the first worlds that I fell in love with and it isn't nearly as dangerous as other universes. Obviously, the Enchanted Forest is magi...

Re: Book Bout - Fictional modes of transportation

I would want to be able to ride on any creature that can fly like a hippogriff or Pegasus, but preferably a dragon. It'll be an awesome experience to see everything from above. This method of transportation is entirely dependent on the magical creature, of course. They have to be able to trust their...
