Hello readers! I’ve been enjoying “To Kill a Mocking Bird” and I am checking out the latest books to see what I feel like reading next! Of course I pay a visit to BMV on Yonge St north. It’s a great place for the Adult reader. Although they do have some used children’s books to.
In the mean time I will continue to entertain you with my antidotes and stories from the big city. I decided to drop by my favourite children’s bookstore the other day as well “Mable’s fables” on Mount Pleasant. It has been some time since I paid that lovely shop a visit but I’m starting to think about the holiday and I love to buy a book or two for the youngsters in my life.
As much as children enjoy those wonderful games on their Xbox’s and whatever. It’s so important to encourage the kids in our lives to read and use their imaginations by exploring a good book.
As you may know from reading my blog I have written my first children’s short story. It’s very good. At least I think so and that’s a start. I have had a few very close friends of mine take a look at it and it seems to be getting some nice reviews! I hope they are being honest! Spare no feelings just give it to me straight.
Anyway, as I browse the shelves at this wonderful shop I see so many stories I have read as a child. And as Meg Ryan’s character “Kathleen Kelly” stated in “You’ve Got Mail” Reading a book as a child becomes a part of you and shape’s you into who you are going to be. I paraphrased that a bit but I do believe it to be true.
I’m hoping to have my book out somehow before the end of this year. I have no idea how it’s done but I will nose around and find out how one goes about doing this. I have a wonderful person to do the illustrations and my editor is going to help erase all the mistakes and make it fabulous!
Your little job this week is to get your kids to your local children’s book store! They will just love it and you will have a blast reading it to them! Yes read it to them! They will never forget it! Now back to my bookstore strollin!
