I love reading. I was very impressed by Jennifer's (Pinwheels) booklist. P has a masters in English Literature so he has no doubt read more on the list than I havfe. I have just finished reading the Post Birthday World by Lionel Shriver which I really enjoyed. At the moment I am halfway through Anne Tyler's Digging to America which is about the adoption of 2 Korean babies by two different American families.
Kit and Hannah's favourite books at the moment are: Winnie in Winter by V Thomas and K Paul; Room on the Broom by J Donaldson; Faster Faster, Nice and Slow (because they substitue the main characters Nick and Sue for themselves!)by N Sharratt and S Heap and Down by the Station.
For P's 40th I am thinking of getting him a book (yet another one) on how people store their 'libraries' as we seem to have way too many books for a typical suburban home and need to come up with some effective way of storing them that doesn't take up too much room but still allows us to have them out of boxes and in reach. When we move the kids will be upgrading to a bigger book shelf too as theirs is a bit overloaded at the moment.
