A Universe of Books



“What do I read now”, my son asked me after finishing the Harry Potter series, and analysing it in as much depth as his mother’s now rusty knowledge permitted. Half a dozen recommendations jostled their way to the front- books I love, books I thought he would like, suitable books- I pushed them all aside. “Here’s a cupboard full of books”, I told him. “Pick any that you think you might like.”

There is a Universe of Books out there, and it is never too early to learn how to search for books that engage you.

He picked a Cozy-mystery!

Hi! My first here :)

What bliss to stand and stare at the beautiful world. I almost thought you would end it with a " He chose to re-read the HP series" :P Not uncommon either! :)
