It's Enya's birthday, and the Donegal Dame has given her fan's a present--news of the next album. At least some of the recording will be done in Abbey Road Studios in London, with an orchestra and choir. Book of Days has added a new section to the News Articles section.
Enthusiastic, outgoing, friendly, intelligent. That's Enya, and its no surprise to her fans, but Ultrafat Angel has the handwriting analysis to prove it. Theo has contributed a great article analyzing Enya's handwriting. Ever wonder what that big swoop of a "y" means when she signs her name? Check out Theo's article, Enya Handwriting Analysis: Revealing Her Personalities

We have a tracklisting! Check Enya News for more information.
Lookie, I've added a new banner to celebrate Enya's 20-year extravagana Very Best of release! Red and black are the colors of the season! TC thinks this is a major change because she's very fond of the previous BOD collage of photos banner. Fear not, the banner will return. The photo used for Enya's interview with The Times is a BOD favorite.
Also added information about an IE-8 problem with the BOD menu system to the Site Information page. Also caught up on the news about the nomination of the cover art for And Winter Came... to the Enya News page.
Artwork for The Very Best of Enya has been released. Roma has given us a teaser for the Second Loxian Games in the form of The Nightflowers Competition. The news of the last two exciting weeks in EnyaWorld are covered in Enya News. Can The Second Loxian Games be on their way?
The cover of Enya's 2008 winter-themed album, And Winter Came..., has been nominated for a Grammy award. Check Enya News for more information.

The rumored The Very Best of Enya compilation has been confirmed by Roma Ryan on enya.com. Check Enya News for more information.
I'm very happy to add to the Book of Days Links section, the Celtic Music Fan blog from Rommel. This is a relatively new blog, but Rommel has already scored good interviews with folks from the Irish music community. Naturally, he's an Enya and Clannad fan as well. Be sure to check this one out.

My, my, times flies! I've been collecting articles to update the site since early November. The oddest thing happened in late October. A large kangaroo showed up at my doorstep with an invitation to join the mod team at Unity. It's been go-go-go! since then. All together, this is an exciting, and busy, time to be an Enya fan!
Two new articles written for Book of Days have gone online: Enya, a Donegal Star, is a look at Donegal's quietest star by a fan who lives not far down the road from her family, Draíocht an Dúlra. Poet and photographer Kerry Brennan reviews Roma Ryan's poem, The Psalm of Little Things.
The And Winter Came... article and album review sections have a number of new articles. The best of these is from Hot Press Magazine, Ethereal Girl. This article comes via Skyscape of the Unity fan forum, who was nice enough to send me a copy of the magazine. Thanks, Sky!

A link to the new video for Trains & Winter Rains can be found in Enya News It's an outstanding video. After the aimless wandering of the Amarantine video and the artificiality of the It's in the Rain video, it's an astounding and welcome change.
Its been a long time coming...
Some parts of the site aren't finished yet. I decided that real life meant I had to live with imperfections. Not all parts of the BoxRoom (the Book of Days madhouse) are filled in. Care to contribute some mangled song lyrics or wallpaper? In addition to the newspaper and online articles & interviews, I'm looking for original content, articles by informed people who have something to say about Enya and her music. Skyscape has contributed the first article about Enya and her importance to the Gaelic language. Contributors are welcome, though final decisions on what to put online are up to the Ultimate Manager. That would be my cat...
I always have an opinion about something. If you know me from Unity, you know that. A section in the Press Room called -30- is my own personal soapbox. (You thought I was going to say litterbox, didn't you?) The first -30- online is a look at the possibility that Enya may really, finally, do a live show.
So, that's it. The new site is online. Thank you for your visit!
