We bought John a set of 16 books by Roald Dahl recently. He read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory first and insisted that I read it as well. (I'd like to remind you that he's 6.)
So I was today-years-old when I finished reading it for the first time ever in my life. Talk about missing out. What an exceptionally well-written book.
I have now made it a goal for this year to read the other 15 books as well.
