We have an extra large haul from several recent trips to book shops. Oh how I love books, and yes, I love buying them. I love our local library and we support it often but buying books, well, it is a weakness the whole family shares.We've been reading quite a few graphic novels this week after a trip to the Silver Snail. I haven't included Andy's books in the list below, there's too much for this post.
This week the 8 yr-old has been reading:
The 6 yr-old has been reading:
Colors by Pantone, actually we are all enjoying this one.
Pippi Moves In by Astrid Lindgren and Ingrid Vang Nyman. We have the chapter books but bought this for the adorable illustrations. So cute.

Real Fast Desserts by Nigel Slater. OK so this book is so great, it is kind of the reason for this whole post. It is such a sit down with a cup of tea on a grey old day and think about food kind of book. There are no pictures and it has ideas more than recipes. Last night, inspired by this book, we had apple slices and a bowl of warm caramel to dip them in. My son is still talking about that dessert, "Remember when we had those apples and caramel." Uhh, yeah you mean the ones we had about 10 hours ago, I think I can remember them.
