    Over the weekend I picked up a book that was bought for Katie (11). Despite Katie's moans to return it, I had to finish it first. Thought it was excellent:Blush: The Hunger Games [ame="http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Hunger-Games-Suzanne-Collins/dp/1407109081"]The Hunger Games[/ame] I think I'll have to buy Katie the other two in the series:BigGrin:

    There's been a lot of hype about the film lately, too.

    It's on our "to see" list.

    I keep promising myself that I will re-read the Arthur Ransome books again - but it's been getting on for 50 years since I first read them and haven't got round to it yet.
    I remember that they were excellent.
    Going round The Lost Gardens of Heligan a few weeks ago we found a charcoal burning site and it reminded me of the charcoal burner in Swallows and Amazons (or was it one of the others?). :thumb:

    There is a lot of excellent stuff written for 'Young Adults' - His Dark Materials, Eragon, Harry Potter spring to mind.

    Read on. :BigGrin:

    Our Leader (may his name be praised) might have the appearance of a rufty tufty giant who is trained to kill by attacking one of the vulnerable points on the human body with half a carrot...

    but...
