Interesting run of literacy ultimate brags lately! As we come to the end of the long summer holiday, I thank my lucky stars for a bookworm child - it makes life so much easier! My best potential current brag is probably that DS8 has been reading and rereading The Silmarillion with great pleasure. The new stage we've reached in the last year is that it now makes sense to recommend selected not-specifically-for-children books that we think he'll enjoy; other particular hits have been Agatha Christie's Poirot stories (although they don't half lead to interesting questions: "what is a vegetable alkaloid?", "how do you smoke opium?", "what is a pawn shop" - thank goodness I got him to spell the last before answering it ;-) and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

I don't often get round to commenting on the Ultimate Brag Thread postings, but I love reading them!
