Your Moment of Reading

Daddyo, reading from John D. Fitzgerald’s The Great Brain:

“When we returned from church, Tom, Sweyn, and I quickly changed into our old clothes. Then we waited on the back porch until Papa had changed clothes and come out wearing his overalls. This was the day of the week when we made ice cream, and everybody helped.”

The Five-Year-Old: “Daddyo, I want to jump into the book right that second.”

Boy, is she going to love the Thursday Next series. So, what are you reading with your future Jasper Fforde fan this week?


About Shala Howell

I write about wildly curious kids, rabbits who hunt dragons, and 1880s Boston. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), I blog about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at, muse about books and the writing life at, or tweet about books, writing, science, & things that make me smile at @shalahowell.
