I’m currently reading an adorable novel: Mariana by Monica Dickens (great-granddaughter of Charles Dickens). It’s a sweet story about a girl growing up and I’m enjoying it immensely. It reminds me a bit of A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, only so much better – at least in my opinion. I’ve only read about 100 pages, but I’m very much hooked – I desperately need my daily dosis. It’s been a long time since I felt that way about a real physical book. My reading time is limited, so it’ll probably be ages before I finish reading and writing a review.

The other day, I was reading while Edith took a nap. She woke up after only 20 minutes and refused to go back to sleep even though she seemed tired. So I thought Why not try and read while she’s relaxing in my arms? Like we used to do when she was very little. Boy was I naive! She kept crawling around, grabbing the book, trying to put it in her mouth, and crumbling the pages with her little hands. I can’t believe how much she’s changed in just a few months. I think I managed to read one sentence then I gave up 😀
