BEDTIME READING

Kid got a little out of control tonight. There was an interrogation, then a mention of zombies. I tried to calm him down with a little light reading. He wasn't having Dr. Suess.

Count Zero, by William Gibson

Bloodshot, by Cherie Priest

And yes, those are Thomas the Tank Engine PJs.

  4. @Nick He does enjoy certain passages from If on a Winter's Night a Traveler. *nods*

    @Elena He looked at the cover of Bloodshot and said "This looks like a scary book", then leaned close and quietly said "There are probably bears in it". Because, you know, they're the scariest. :D

  6. Excellent book choices, esp. the Gibson. You are indeed, as Jaime points out, an "awesome mum."

    And yes. Bears are the scariest. Especially polar bears. Most especially the rampaging ones.

  10. He gets really serious about his reading, Girl Friday. He'll narrow his eyes, and trail his finger along a line, then look up and say "interesting". I don't have the heart to tell him that sometimes he's holding the book upside down.
