Aren't some kids' books great?

I was having a bit of a reminisce about books I loved in my youth and still love today, partly because I'm buying a new copy of Susan Cooper's "The Dark is Rising Sequence" on Amazon, and partly because I was listing my favourite books on Facebook. And I realised whilst on Amazon looking up "The Dark is Rising" that you know a book's probably quite good when 29 people have reviewed it, and one person's given it 4/5 stars. The others have all given it 5 stars. Ditto "The Phantom Tollbooth" by Norton Juster – 13 reviews, all 5 stars. Both brilliant books which I will still quite happily read now, mid–way through my English Literature degree, both possibly not as well–known as they should be, and both really, really good. Recommended.

Writing about an entry you don't have permission to view

The comments on Rebecca's entry have really cheered me up and restored my faith in men, not least because they've reassured me that a) men aren't shallow (well, not that shallow at least! :–P) and b) that I never need to have another moment where I worry about someone I've taken a liking to seeing me without makeup.


I'm now going to get a cup of tea and revise in ultimate contentment*. Thank you guys :)

*As far as such a thing is possible where revision is involved.
