5/365 Eve of the Epiphany

La Befana comes tonight to children all over Italy, bringing gifts and sweets to the ones that have been good and lumps of coal to the others. La Befana is an ugly old crone, with hooked nose and warts. But La Befana is kindly and good and reminds us that we shouldn't judge a book by it's cover.


  1. Sounds like a rigwoodie hag with a heart!
    Interesting collection of books. Almost suggests catholic taste.

  2. The one on top to help me to think hard. Which books would you have in your stack?
