I have read a few books and stories in my life which I consider to be the best of their kind. "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit". "The Yearling". "A Stone For Danny Fisher". "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn". "The Winds of War". "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime". And every one of the Foundation Series by Asimov.
When one has children one tries, at times, to introduce those children to things that have made an impression and been an influence in one's life. Places seen. Things done. Books read.
#1 Son has just started the fifth of the Foundation Series. This is the first time I can remember suggesting reading material to the man that he has not only read it, but enjoyed it, and come back for more.
I wonder why it takes so long .....
