Check this article out! In a World Book Day British poll, Harry Potter and Twilight were voted among the top ten books that people would most like to pass on to their children.

The Harry Potter series came in first. Twilight is number five. I'll see if I can find out who the others are in the top ten.

What's on your list?

Hayden LOVES HP and he's only 3.5 years old. I'm hoping he wants to read the books when he gets older.

As much as I love Twilight, I don't think my boys would be interested lol

Thank you tasha_mae for the awesome siggy!

I would pass on Harry Potter, definitely.
Wind in the Willows.
Watership Down.
The Hobbit & The Lord Of The Rings.
Lord of the Flies.
Alice in Wonderland & Alice Through The Looking Glass.
Everything by Enid Blyton - Malory Towers, St Clare's, Secret Seven, Famous Five, Magic Faraway Tree...but probably more for a little girl.

Harry Potter and pretty much any classice book really, I have a whole lot of them and I can't wait to have kids to read to.

Thank you to the wonderful ladies who mad the blinkies!

"The Lord compensates the faithful for every loss. That which is taken away from those who love the Lord will be added unto them in His own way. While it may not come at the time we desire, the faithful will know that every tear today will eventually be returned a hundredfold with tears of rejoicing and gratitude..... These experiences, while often difficult to bear at the time, are percisely the kinds of experiences that stretch our understanding, build our character and increase our compassion for others."
