Quote du jour/Jean and Lionel
Jean: Why are you reading Winnie-the-Pooh?
Lionel: I went to the library today.
Jean: You didn't tell me you went to the children's library.
Lionel: No, I got some other books as well. I've got more time for reading now so I thought I'd catch up on all the books I think I've read but actually haven't: Grapes of Wrath, Mill on the Floss, and Moby Dick.
Jean: Don't you think you're a bit old for that?
Lionel: I wouldn't like to think so.
Jean proceeds to read to Lionel from Winnie-the-Pooh and then says: Yes, you're right. Nobody's too old to read that. Can I read it when you're finished?
