I just finished reading James and the Giant Peach with my little boy, and we’re going to start Pippy Longstocking tonight. Children’s books are so much fun!

Pippy Longstocking was a popular cartoon on TV during the 80s.

I really liked Pippy Longstocking as a kid, but I don’t think I ever saw the cartoon.

It’s a lot of fun to reread books I liked as a kid. My son loves them, too. His favorites so far have been the Wayside School books. He loves to laugh.

I was wrong. It was a 1997 cartoon. But I vaguely remember knowing about Pippi Longstocking in the 1980s.

I was a Swedish TV series in 1969.

It was based on a book by the Swedish children’s book author Astrid Lindgren. She was quite popular.

Winners, by Danielle Steel.

A father wants to build a new rehab centre for spinal injury patients after his daughter fell off a ski lift and shattered her spine from the waist down.
The emergency surgeon who operated on her basically found out after that her husband died in a car crash but her son was left unscathed.
The bloke who wants to follow his suicide friends vision and set up this rehab thing, is basically a pig to the woman and carts his only child halfway across the world to see specialists who all concur that his daughters injuries are complete, meaning she won't walk again
In theory this book is supposed to be about survival but I already feel depressed reading it. At least the last one has some happy ending, the way this is going I'm sure sure if I'll make the end.

My Education: A Book Of Dreams, by William Burroughs.

Posthumously published, this book consists of Burroughs' recollections of his dreams. And I thought my dreams were weird! A Fathers Day gift from my wife, this book lives up to Burroughs' legacy and reputation as an experimental author who walked on the strange side.

Not With a Bang but a Whimper: The Politics and Culture of Decline by Theodore Dalrymple.

I'm also rereading Brothers Karamazov.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with my little boy. Roald Dahl is SO good! It’s such fun to reread books that I loved as a kid.

Reasons To Stay Alive by Matt Haig.

He's wonderful.

It's a different sort of book to his usual, non fiction memoir about... well exactly what the title says it's about.
