I have decided to step up and become a much more active member on our little community. So, to celebrate this I’m sharing my favourite quotes in our new FRIDAY Feature – 3 quotes.
One of the most fun set of books to read aloud to children are the Dr Suess books. Dr Suess is actually the pen name for Author and illustrator Theodor Seuss Geisel. His books have become some of the most popular children’s books of all time selling over 600 million copies which have been translated into more than 20 languages. He adopted the pen name Dr Suess during his time at Dartmouth college and the University of Oxford. He worked as an illustrator for many years and during WW2 he worked as an animator for the animation department of the United States of America government. After the war, he concentrated on his children’s books and has published over 60, many of which have become films, Tv series and even a broadway musical.
Magic and murder engulf the realm of Kelewan.
Fierce warlords ignite a bitter blood feud to enslave the empire of Tsuranuanni. While in the opulent Imperial courts, assassins and spy-master plot cunning and devious intrigues against the rightful heir.
Now Mara, a young, untested Ruling lady, is called upon to lead her people in a heroic struggle for survival. But first she must rally an army of rebel warriors, form a pact with the alien cho-ja, and marry the son of a hated enemy. Only then can Mara face her most dangerous foe of all–in his own impregnable stronghold.- Goodreads
I thought i would start updating what i’ve been reading each month here on my blog with a small review of what i thought of the book.
Previous Reading History
Before 2013 i read. No keeping lists of books i had read, i think maybe i had just signed up to Goodreads. But when i left the UK in 2013 i started tracking what i read in the back of my calendar journal. It started of really scrappily on a piece of paper and then i just wrote down the title and author. I was interested to see the next year how many paperbacks i read compared to kindle books and so it started. I have got more interested in stats and this has encouraged me to read more out of my comfort zone. So, this year, i have been trying to read more non-fiction books.
