 HI! Paige Zimmerman here, your friendly book blogger!  I'm so excited to share with you today the exciting news that a very old and rare book, The Sardonic Manuscript, has been mysteriously sent to our local library. What are the odds? 

I've been so excited to be able to spend time in the library studying this fantastic manuscript. It's ancient pages tell so many secrets...I've studied this book for years in the abstract, following chat rooms and online discussions about it. I never dreamed I'd be able to study up close and personal! 

The Sardonic manuscript, a text from the ancient country of Sardonia in Italy, was stolen years ago from a tomb near the Italian city. There have been so many rumors about it an ancient genealogical text, tracing the lineage of royal families? A warning for our future? Is it a phone book from the land of the old ones? It's a mystery I hope to unravel. Watch this space!!
