Literary Friends.

Reading is fun.  Tanja, the eldest of the two girls I look after, absolutely loves books.  She devours them regularly and with intensity; to be precise, every 2- 5 days.  Being nine years old is the best age, because the books you get to read are s0 imaginative and entertaining.  The somewhat dreariness of life’s realities are erased momentarily when you become literally “stuck” in a book.

In my day, I read Nancy Drew books like no other.  Cover to cover in 2 days (on my Summer vacation).  The same went for the other series: Little Women, Little House on the Prarie, and Anne of Green Gables, though those usually took a week or so.

Rediscovering reading (books, that is- not the internet or magazines), is one of the best things that can happen to a person.  Although the internet is tempting- some may say information is too attainable now- I have found it to be extremely satisfying to log off, and get lost in a novel.  With that, I give you some fun titles:
