I don't know why that isn't a bigger priority in schools, either, Susan. I really don't...
Or she's using it to manipulate us, Becky. Because she knows that we'll THINK she's about to fall asleep, and drop everything. :-)
Oh, she loves Pigeon in all states, Susan. Thanks for the birthday wishes. And I did read A Week in Winter, and loved it very much. I didn't want it to end (especially as Binchy's final book ... sob).
I wish they had published the books a bit closer together, too, Tina. Ah well, it's good for kids to learn deferred gratification, I guess. It's a fun one, for sure.
Oh, I love "From the Mixed-Up Files", Ami. It's one that I look forward to reading to my daughter when she is older. The Sales book sounds good, too. Thanks for the recommendation!
It's very fun!

Thanks, Katy! She also sometimes asks for books if she's injured or otherwise in distress. Books as comfort object - like mother like daughter.
Thanks, Jenny! I love these moments, too :-)

I loved Circle of Friends. I've been lugging the hardcover around for years, in case I ever want to re-read it. I loved Eleanor and Park, but am keeping Fangirl in reserve for sometime when I'm out of things to read. Can that ever happen??
