    My Favourite Books

    We read many books as a child and many of these are forgotten, but Roald Dahl has remained a firm memory in my adult mind. The Twits and the the BFG would have to be my all time Favourites, and the books were only made more exciting when Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda...

    It Makes Me Feel Better =)

    I Really Love These...

    I read all of Roald Dahl's books as a kid.  My favourite was Danny the Champion of the World but I also have fond memories of Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Twits.   I'm not sure why I liked them so much, but I assume that it's because they're grotesque.  I always...

    I prefer books any day to those silly little e-books. I don't see the point of them. They can never replace the feel, smell & calmness of a real book.
