We are deeply into Buy A Friend A Book Week people. To recap my suggestions for kids' books that would be appropriate for adult readers:
How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff
Millions by Frank Cottrell Boyce.
I Was A Teenage Fairy by Francesca Lia Block
The Adrian Mole Diaries by Sue Townsend
So what did I buy? Well, I invested in a copy of Millions to give to a young relative. But then I decided that the book might not be right for him. So I got him a copy of Unshelved.
Millions will go to another relative.
You still have a couple of days to do your part for the publishing industry. Buy books!
