Excuse me.. first of all I am NOT a "he." And don't you even dare start
to accuse me of being some typical lazy student. We have 3 local
libraries here.. I have looked for Celtic Books and have found NONE. I
have a book on world mythology that has a small section on Celtic
Mythology, however it isn't enough. I found absolutely no harm in asking
for people's stories. Now about that comment that "...hasn't paid a bit
of attention in class.." I am in Mythology.. we mainly cover that of
Greek mythology.. I am a straight A student.. so don't even think that I
don't listen for one minute. I could tell you any story of Greek
mythology easily. Somehow going out to purchase a bunch of books on a
topic I would never pick up again is a silly waste of my money. If you
have any other rude comments.. perhaps you could direct them to me. I
offered my thanks for any help that could be offered. It's hard to
understand the stories of a culture you have never studied before, so
give me a break.
