A Blast From the Past:
Book of the Week
I realized that while we always have a book or two on the go, we haven’t read a classic for ages and when I spotted this in the library I grabbed it. I remember reading my way through the entire series as a kid and not being able to read them fast enough. Well I have to say, could a book be more gripping… a boy, a horse, a shipwreck and survival. Literally sitting on the edges of the seat and an aaaargh… every time we reach the end of a chapter and say, “That’s it for the day…” And it is a genuine, “Please can we have a little more?” because they have to hear more of the story rather than they just like being read too.
That’s us… Hope your weekend has been a fabulous one…
