Background: Wormburner (aka son#2) has been reading Artemis Fowl.
Setting: Last night at dinner . . .
Wormburner: “Dad, did you know fairies have jet packs?”
Dad: “Um, no?”
Wormburner: “And they vibrate!”
Wormburner starts vibrating in his seat.
Mom explains: “Fairies vibrate at a speed that renders them invisible to the human eye. Don’t ask me how I know this.”
Dad raises an eyebrow, nods.
Mighty Mite (aka son#3): “I knew that!”
Wormburner starts vibrating faster and faster.
Dad: “I can still see you.”
Folks, this is the stuff that makes life worth living.
Kids: The Lord’s original Cheap Entertainment.
Back to our regularly scheduled program . . .
And speaking of epic, my TBR (To Be Read) pile grew so large, due to the massive additions from the list above, that it underwent mitosis and spawned another pile. Hopefully, I will chop it down to size over the holidays and come back in the New Year with lots of new reviews!
Thanks again to all the commenters who made suggestions and stopped by Ink Spells! We have lots more fun ahead . . .
So, what is on your holiday reading list? Or will you be too busy with the eggnog and stockings to curl up with a book (or a nook – oops! they’re sold out! sorry!)?
