I know fairy tales were intended for Children, but I like reading fairy tales, such as Grimm's Fairy Tales and Andersen fairy tales... Most of story have a happy ending, good will be rewarded with good and evil with evil. As am adult, do you still read fairy tales sometime? What fairy tales do you prefer?

Yes, when I read or watch fairy tales, I feel I live around them. I am happy for them if they live a happy life at the end of the story and become worried and want to help them when they meet obstacles.

Hi Dasari! Which one do you plan to read next week? Grimm's fairy tales or Anderson fariy tales? I guess maybe you didn't read Anderson fairy tales. Because Grimm's fairy tales is more widespread. For Anderson fariy tales, the most well- known ones are " The snow Queen", " The Little Mermaid", " The ugly Duckling" and "The Emperor's New Clothes". I have ebooks of these two fairy tales collections, I can send them to you if you want.

I have never outgrown my love for fairytales. The stories are so enchanting. I like kingdoms, princesses, heroes, magics, spells, fairies, fairyland and the triumph of good versus evil. The stories are so simple yet full of lessons in life. My daughter loves fairytales too and I enjoy reading stories to her.

You are right, heart143. Although these stories seems very simple for adult, it is give us lessons, we learn what is right and what is wrong from these stories.

I love it I always said that I wish everyone could think back to when they were young, believeing they could fly, live forever, whatever....this would make us pure innocence. I think war would not have a name and killing would only be know in the bible. children have beautiful minds and if for a few minutes of reading a fairy tale can bring into the state a mind for a while then thats good right???? come one someone must understand this....

Hi greemeyes, you are definitely right! When we feel tired to struggle in life, just read a fairy tale, it remind us of the innocence age. Fairy tales will purify our mind. Have a good day!
