Finished Reading The World Guide to Gnomes, Fairies, Elves, and Other Little People

The other day, I finally finished my quest to read Thomas Keightley’s 500+ page tome The World Guide to Gnomes, Fairies, Elves, and Other Little People cover to cover. A copy of the 1978 Avenel edition has been sitting on my bookshelf for some time now, but until recently, I’ve only ever read bits and pieces of it. It was time I read the whole thing. It took me long enough. I found it informative, though I was already familiar with many of the stories. It’s interesting to see the same motifs pop up again, and again, and again.
