Book reading

I am so excited. I am a massive book lover although as an adult I don't often get to indulge. I distinctly remember the joy of reading 'Jamaica Inn' from cover to cover whilst on holiday in Greece. It was the first book I had completed since Freya was born and it felt great.

Books have the ability to enrich our lives in a myriad of ways. I found this quote from Julia Donaldson, the new children's laureate  to illustrate this.

The reason I bring this up? Freya and I have just finished her first chapter of a real book, whoop,whoop. Fantastic Mr Fox, where better to start. There is so much that I want to share with her... the Magician's Nephew, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Willard Price and the list goes on and on...

This is my copy of the book from when I was a child and we even made our bookmark. I hope both girls develop a love of reading but really, what's not to love?
