    Oh so much! I go through phases,

    but I feel like I just got punched in the gut! Have you ever had that feeling that you're supposed to do something, supposed to pursue something, but aren't sure how, not sure you have what it takes? Many people feel this regarding music, or art, or business... I feel it with...

    The Magic Faraway Tree

    A Wonderful Way To End The Day.

    For over a decade now, I have been reading a bedtime story, most nights, to which ever child of mine was willing to listen. I have always felt a sense of accomplishment, to be able to sit and re tell a story, share in some magic, have some special quiet time, and then a kiss...

    I love reading to my son Toro,

    he used to read out loud too but since the VGKC antibodies affected his skills he hasn't anymore. Anyway, I will always love story time at bedtime, even when he tries to close the book!

    My teacher at school,

    Mrs Hanscombe, was always very enthusiastic about any project, sometimes much more than the class. But she loved reading children's stories to us and had a talent for giving different voices to the characters. This was when I was introduced to the Narnia books and I still have a...

    The Chronicles Of Narnia

    I cannot put down that book! I am on the third story now. The author is such a good story teller. I love how comforting children's books are. They are simple and aren't as dramatic as novels.

    I have trouble concentrating

    but even if I didn't some of the books aimed at adults are so big/fat I'm put off by them. Also many books for adults have death/violence or something that looks really upsetting in them just reading the blurb about the book. It's likely that that won't take up a small amount of...
