I wanted to share enjoy some facts about author Lewis Carroll. I found it interesting that writing was not his main profession and had several in his lifetime. He wrote under his real name for his books pertaining to his career and created a pen name for his children’s novels and poetry.  Like most writers he never relied on writing for his main source of income and worked as a lecturer and was trained as an ordained minister. Take a look at a video of Ian McKellen reading the Jabberwocky. Its one of my favourite readings of the poem and he does a marvellous job.   Let me know what you think of the post in the comments.

Hope you enjoyed the post and have a great day :0)
