I know I'm a day late but it's a work thing!!
I decided to join in with the Show & Tell fun when I saw it on Joe's blog last month.The topic for this month is your favourite book, well I have a couple so decided to list mine in categories::
First up - Children's Book.
This is my all time modern favourite children's book, it helps that it's also 'Little Miss H' and 'Master M's' favourite too!! The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson just has so much to offer, its got beautiful rhymes, amazing pictures, a story that lends itself to actions with young children and helps build memory skills in older children. My two haven't tired from this fabulous story yet and they're 7 and 5!
Current Favourites::Yes that's right I have 'Twiglight' fever. I read the whole series before I viewed the films and much as I love the movies, the books are soooo much better, oh and I'm definitely team edward. Just in case you wondered.
Yes that's right another popular series, the Harry Potter collection of books. Again these have been read several times, definitley before I've watched the movies and I just love them. Mine have got the children's covers so that they will be more appealing to the little people when they are competent enough readers but I daresay I'll end up buying the collection again for fear of them damaging my copies. I'm a bit anal like that!!
Where it began::
I've always been an avid reader and enjoyed all the books I read at school which led me to do English Literature A-Level and then onto an English & Eductaion degree. It was reading this book though that really got me hooked::
I found Irvine Welsh at a time when for many, reading fades into the background, for me however finding this unique, very modern and gritty author just further gave me the reading bug. Period. In the middle of my book shelf is a collection of well read, well worn, some might even say battered, Irvine Welsh novels. I love them. They remind me of a mispent youth! Nobody dare touch them, as other books rotate in and out of our house, this collection is always there shining down on me.
Now in writing this post I realise that I haven't read anything new for some time (except craft books!) and that Mr. Welsh has even added to his collection, so I'm off to The Book Depository now!
