Maybe I'm not so useless
I just read a blog post from this time last year, when I was apparently reading Farmer Boy aloud to Nat. That means that in the last year, we've read Farmer Boy, Little House in the Big Woods, Little House on the Prairie, By the Banks of Plum Creek, The Neverending Story, Prince Caspian, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the Silver Chair, and The Last Battle. I think i'm missing one or two. Still, that seems like a pretty respectable list, actually. We started a few, like The Phantom Tollbooth, and The Horse and His Boy, which we didn't get very excited about.
I'm hoping to read Momo next, Michael Ende's beautiful and strange novel about a little girl who listens so intensely that she can hear what people are really saying, and the Men in Grey who steal people's time, and the magical wise tortoise, Cassiopeia, who can see into the future by half an hour. Maybe The Lord of the Rings soon? Before or after The Dark is Rising?
