Deathly silence

Apologies for the lack of posts at the moment but any spare time is currently being consumed by Harry Potter! It wasn’t entirely coincidental that we found ourselves in our local ASDA on Sunday afternoon, picking up one of the last of their 5000 £5 copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Christine tends to be a faster reader so I agreed she could go first. I hadn’t, however, bargained on her reading it out aloud to Emma as I went in and out of the room. So, now we’re all reading it together which, as you might imagine, is a little slower going…

    Surely you cann’t read the last book of the series to Emma? She will get very disappointed knowing what happens and will never get around to reading the other ones (or watching the movies) for years to come.

    Anyway I would have thought you should be showing her the international orienteering control symbols and explaining what they meant.

    P.S. Can I borrow it when Emma has finished it?

    It’s okay – Emma probably can’t hear anything over the glugging noises she is making and then tends to fall asleep about half way through a chapter. Maybe we’ll sell you a copy for half the RRP. 😉

    No way, Harry Potter! In 399 BC Socrates was put on Trial and sentenced to death for “voluntarily corrupting the youth”. I know it was a long time ago and we are now a civilized society but … Harry Potter … pleeeaaase.
    Just kidding, but I agree with Neil comment that you should start from the very first book. Surely you have time on your hands and Emma is a fast learner.
    By the way, we need a first aider for the RR10 in Hursley. Just checking if you’ll be around.
