PS The old saying that you can lead a horse to water but can't make it drink is prominent across my consciousness right now.
My oldest daughter recruited me, and the teen has FINALLY this year got into them (but its senior at school so she hasn't got much time), the 11 yr old has started reading the Tiffany series (from me?... Nooooooo.... Gerhard was babysitting and reading The Wee Free Men to her a few weeks ago..... and everyone knows he is a god because he has a pet turtle).
Yep Janet. I used to gush about them years ago. HAD to convert. Now.... I tell anyone who asks and briefly and to the point... if you can't pick them up yourself and display at least SOME curiosity.... your loss.
