Winnie-the-pooh

I cannot believe that I have never read this before! I'm actually in the middle of Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, but was finding it dark and wanted something lighter for a couple of hours. Pooh was just sitting there on the shelf so got picked up.

It's so cute and simple and silly and innocent. It made me feel like a kid - safe and protected and with no worries in the world. And it made me think of wanting to read it to my future kids. If, like me, you haven't got around to reading A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-pooh, do so now, you'll love it! Make sure it's the edition that's illustrated by E.H. Shepard, the simple drawings really add to the book.

Challenges: A-Z Challenge, 888 Challenge, Classics Challenge, Decades Challenge, Initials Reading Challenge, What an Animal Challenge - very good for a cute little book I read accidentally while reading something else! ;-)

I absolutely love everything about Winnie the Pooh. I read them as an adult for myself. In fact I really think adults get the most out of Winnie. I also read Shadow of the Wind not too long ago. It was dark and I couldn't decide whether I like it or not.

I'm glad you enjoyed it! I haven't read Winnie-the-pooh either--except small excerpts here and there. :) You sure do know how to manage your challenges, huh! 6 for this one!
