We Bought A Zoo
...by Benjamin Mee. It must be a good book because I read it cover to cover on Sunday in between seeing to Michaela!

It's really different. I love animals and zoos anyway so it was always going to interest me. But it's also a story about the guy growing as a person through some really tough times, as well as about the zoo. It's a true story set in Devon in England, and I think it's really well written. I'd recommend it, anyway.

Has anyone seen the film with Leo diCaprio? I fancy seeing it now.

I haven't seen it but I didn't realize that movie was based on a movie. I may have to check it out :) Especially if you read it in one day!

I do have a bit of a habit of doing that Jess unless the book is really pants. Could just be me! :giggle:

I didn't realise the movie was based on a book either until I saw it in a charity shop, it only cost me 1.

:giggle: I used to be able to do that!!!! I remember one March Break, I read 35 books. An average of 4/day (including weekends). I think I was about 9 or 10? Crazy!

I also didn't realize the movie was based on a book. I'll have to check it out. Good story!

Re: We Bought A Zoo
lol Jess, I must have read a LOT of books between the ages of around 9 and 11. It's what I spent practically ALL my free time doing. ;)
