Books, books everywhere, which one will I read?

I have always been an avid reader.  I remember getting a new book from the library when I was a kid and disappearing into my room to devour it, not coming out until I was done.  I was a school librarian during my primary school years and had a library card up until I matriculated.  I would spend all my pocket money on books and I have never been so happy as when {Kindles} became available.  There have been months where I have spent every last spare cent I have in the Amazon book store!

Thank heavens my kids are heading in the same direction.  Hardly a night goes by without books being read before bedtime.  Aaron loves Wednesdays which are library day at school.  Faith carries books around with her wherever she goes.

But how do you choose what book to get for your kids?  With so many awesome books to choose from it can be pretty difficult.

So, the Dewey Big Book Guide for Kids is an absolute win!


Compiled by a panel of experienced booksellers, the Dewey Best Book Guide is packed with books to choose from, conveniently presented in age appropriate sections.

You will be able to find these guides in an {Exclusive Books} near you!

In the mean time there is an exclusive launch being held at {Munch} in Bryanston on Thursday 14th November and one lucky blog reader, and your children, will be attending with me, Aaron and Faith!

In order to be entered into the draw just tell me below, what your favourite book was when you where a child.

  1. The Witches by Roald Dahl. It was the first book I bought for myself with my own money. It was later replaced (or joined) in its place of honour by Danny, The Champion of the World – also by Roald Dahl. Oh, but I can’t forget The Hounds of the Morrigan by Pat O’ Shea… I had a hard time choosing just one favourite then and I still do now!
    Sadly, I have business meetings all day on the 14th, so, as much as I would LOVE to win this one, I’ll have to be satisfied with just sharing my bit.
    I hope you have an awesome time!

  2. The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton. There was an open piece of veld between my house and my best friend’s house when we were growing up. Exactly halfway in between was a huge tree. We used to spend hours under there pretending it was the Magic Faraway Tree, escaping our lives in fantasies about what lands might be at the top of the tree and making up our own.

    It was so much fun reading it with Athena when she was about 4. I have pictures of her and her friend in the tree she decided was her Magic Faraway tree. We still call it the Magic Faraway Tree, even though she’s old enough now to think it’s tiny.
