I hope you see Jack that you quite clearly answered your own question even if you didnt exactly spell it out.

Where do I find I lass attracted to me despite my reading material or Pratchett bless it, because of my reading material?

You just need to lower your standards to a lass who not only reads Harry Potter but drags her boyfriend who is only in he city for 1 day along to the movie.

HA HA! (next time your down here I'm going to use my evil feminine wiles to get you to read them. All seven)

I'm pleased to see that your previous stance on reading 'kid lit' has softened. Maybe you can be reappraised of your view on natural justice...

See, reading "What's Left" makes me think: "So that's where we went wrong. I guess I sort of knew that, even if I didn't want to admit it. Ah. here's the chapter on not wanting to admit that we know where we've gone wrong..."

Rereading "Atlas Shrugged" makes me think: "The hell? No one would ever really think this this could work would they? Was Ayn Rand on crack?"

Jack, I may have mentioned to you a couple of times CS Lewis's essay on this very topic "On Three Ways of Writing for Children". Finally found a link to it on the interweb.

He makes some good points I think.

“Okay, Casanova, what are you reading at the moment?”
“Atlas Shrugged.”


hmmm, interesting.


But here’s the thing: that doesn’t matter. If you want to read a kid’s book: read a kid’s book.

True, I still enjoy a bit of ASterix from time to time, and even a Roald Dahl. There's nothing wrong with a bit of really really light reading every so often.

I know if I were physically capable of making room for Mr Olbermann's babies inside my skeleton like figure I most certainly would!
