    "If you give a mouse a cookie", "Ten minutes till bedtime", "Spider and the Fly", "7 Blind Mice", "Harold and the Purple Crayon", "Knuffle Bunny" and I read them about 30-50 times a week. My 3 year old loves 'em.
    Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of wishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling for more than it's worth.

    A very special book to read the children is this one. After reading it to my little one about a zillion times, I know it by heart.

    Ah, thanks for the recommendation! I have pretty much stayed with reading the same thing to all three boys. I'll have to pick that one up next time I'm at B&N. Would be nice to have something new.

    Does that come in a plain wrapper?

    Great memories -- some years back, I read these often to my grandchildren, when they were small. I love them just as much now they're teenagers, but "Harold and the Purple Crayon" just doesn't do much for them any more...although it's fine for me.

    What do I read? I recently finished Edward Rutherfurd's "New York." I've also read his "Sarum," "London" and "Russka." Looking forward to his newest, "Paris." I'm playing, more than reading my way through a couple of guitar books - one slide, one funk. I also like to read poetry - Whitman, Pound, Auden, Eliot, the Beats. Also French poets - Villon, Rimbaud, Verlaine, Baudelaire, Mallarmé...

    Unlike some posters, I don't read the Bible on a daily basis. But I am learning (slowly) to read Koiné - New Testament Greek. Hebrew is next, but I don't know when.

    If you like Canadian mysteries, Dr. Bear, and you prefer "cozy" (as I do), you might like the "Benny Cooperman" stories of Howard Engel. Benny is a private detective with a love of chopped-egg sandwiches. He works in St. Catharines, a very pleasant small city, where I once lived.

    Much more on Howard Engel and Benny, here:
