Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort."   - J.R.R. Tolkien - The Hobbit  I read this first in the 2nd grade. I love Tolkein.Image result for watership down

Memoirs of a GeishaThe Hundred and One Dalmations  Such beautiful illustrations and such a wonderful, imaginative story. I loved the bit when they stayed with Sir Charles and his elderly spaniel. He thought he was seeing ghost dogs from his youth.Plenty More by Yotam Ottolenghi I picked up a signed copy from Ottolenghi Islington. It's a total bliss.
Brideshead Revisited, Evelyn Waugh. File this under "gorgeous novel." Perfect pick for Downton fans.“Never love a wild thing...If you let yourself love a wild thing, you'll end up looking at the sky.”According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and that some quarter of a million children do not own a single book. This is a terrible shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with parents.
