Reading Pride and Prejudice

I'm reading Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice to Baby as a bed-time story.

She picked it up at her school library for her two-week read. And despite the difficulty she has with the language, she's thoroughly enjoying the book. We're now on Chapter 5.

She already knows the basics of the story, as she watched Bride and Prejudice (the Bollywood movie) several times.

And to answer your question BeckyJoie, no, Baby's not really into fantasy. She did enjoy the Twilight series, but she still has a hard time getting into unfamiliar worlds.

A friend of mine bought her the Abhorsen Trilogy by Garth Nix, and she didn't even finish Sabriel. Maybe when she's older, she'll appreciate the books more.

Each person has his or her favorite genre,I guess. Two of my teen boys are really into graphic novels. When I was a teen, I read murder mystery novels, including the adult (not obsene) genres. I read Mrs. Pollifax mysteries, Alfred Hitcock style and more. Now I love historical fiction and nonfiction in many markets. Once in a while, I will read a Christian romance novel. All that matters, I guess is that we learn to love learning and reading. I hope my kids develop this love I have and that many writers share-the love of reading and sharing.

I read Jane Austin from a young age and loved her. Glad Baby's enjoying the classics ;-)
