Your Reading Assignment For Saturday...!

If you like to read as I do, you are always looking for something a bit different, something that will hold your interest!

This might just do the trick for you, if that's the case. It might just take you a bit longer than just a day, however! I have a feeling that this little book might make for some interesting reading, if you have the time to spend trying to get through it.

Oera Linda Book

The Oera Linda Book is a controversial Frisian manuscript covering historical, mythological, and religious themes that first came to light in the 19th century. Themes running through the Oera Linda Book include catastrophism, nationalism, matriarchy, and mythology. The text alleges that Europe and other lands were, for most of their history, ruled by a succession of folk-mothers presiding over a hierarchical order of celibate priestesses dedicated to the goddess Frya, daughter of the supreme god Wr-alda and Irtha, the earth mother. The claim is also made that this Frisian civilization possessed an alphabet which was the ancestor of Greek and Phoenician alphabets. The current manuscript carries a date of 1256. Internal claims suggest that it is a copy of older manuscripts that, if genuine, would have been written by multiple people between 2194 BC and AD 8

I told you this might take a little longer than a day! Could be some dry reading, if you ask me...but what do I know?

Coffee in the kitchen this morning. Biscuits and sausage patties on the side, OK?

Makes as much sense to me as some of the other books on the market today (grin)

Well we know I love to read but this may not be something I want to try. But thanks for the information.

Now for the coffee and biscuits with sausage I will be right there. :)

Hey Dizzy...
I guess that subject matter is all important in a book!

Probably the reason I stick to fiction a lot!

Thanks, buddy, for coming over today!

Hey JoJo...
It might be just a little too deep for a lot of us. Besides, doesn't sound like something That would keep me from dozing off!

Still, there might be a lot of folks that are interested, ya just never know.

Thanks, sweetie, for the visit this morning!

What! No gravy with the sausage biscuits? Save the drippings. I'll make some soon as I arrive.

I'm always into a book or two, often several but I think I must pass on this one, Hermit. I can't make out the first word on that page!
