wrote a post about her favourite books,
and suggest a few of us did the same.
Now my choice of books can be a bit 'rum'
(that's a Northern saying for being a bit daft/weird)
and I know after publishing this post I will
think of loads of others I should've put on here,
but here goes.
If I start off with when I was a kid,
this was my weekly read back in 1978
Every week, my lovely Mummy
would buy me this and my brother
My other brother would probably have been
reading The Guardian and Private Eye!
Then, being totally pony mad,
I moved quickly on to
Moving on to this as I got a bit older...
My love for Roald Dahl
is enriched daily with my lovely job,
'Tales of the Unexpected'
always terrified me.
I'm reading this with my class this week...
(complete with character voices and sound effects)
Whilst I did my training, this book
helped me to understand a little of how it is to live with
A great read even if it is aimed at the teenage market.
Now next up is a whole series of books
that I absolutely adored and couldn't put down!
I even researched a forum about them and
posted about how I loved them and
NEEEEEDED the author to write another.
The Earth's Children series,
by Jean M. Auel
I am led to believe there WILL be
a 6th book and will be due for release next year...
I wait with baited breath!
(I may have to read all the others again though,
just to remind me of why I love them so)
Next a book that won't come as such a huge
suprise to my regular followers...
Basil is the spitting image of the gorgeous
but mad yellow lab Marley.
This is the moment when I say
it's so much better than the film...
John Grogan had me rolling around with laughter,
then weeping buckets!
Don't bother with the film.
Finally, I leave you with the book I am reading
Nothing much I can say on it yet, as I've only just
So, there you go...
What would have been MORE
interesting is what Finn is reading...
The Wickes Catalogue!?!
He loves it and has it under his pillow every night.
Don't dispair though, he is partial to
The Argos Catalogue
and the odd bit of Dahl too!
Oh, before I go...those of you who may be of a similar age to me,
with children like mine, you may enjoy
finding on Youtube
We are listening/watching
stories at the moment.
A blast from the past for me
and fun for the boys too.
I hope you managed to get to the end of all this,
and possibly enjoyed it.
Love Claire. x
