Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day!

A special greeting to my Mummy who has always encouraged me in my reading and writing.  She introduced me to the joys of a good read, a cosy bookshop and a well-stocked magazine store from an early age and we have always maintained our bond over literary love.  She is an avid and adventurous reader with a particular fondness for non-fiction, occasionally emerging from the New Age aisles even. She challenges my learning and still she is always game to make room for reading my latest “you simply have to read this” novel … In the words of Anne of Green Gables she’s a kindred spirit and I’m oh so lucky she’s mine.

And to all you Moms who share a love of reading with your children, whether you’re snuggling up in “the big bed” together reading Harry Potter (and struggling to keep your eyes open) or you’re delighting in sharing your favourite “grown-up” books for the first time with your teen or you’re exchanging best sellers and book club reads with your child who’s flown the nest … have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

    Daughter Dearest,
    What a kind and wonderful tribute. I thank you so much. I read into the wee hours last night on one of the books from your bag. A love story in Cambodia…hard to put down.

    Books and roses…what more could one ever ask for…except a warm puppy.
