Eloise and I tore through the first Harry Potter book sooner than I though possible (new trailer is exciting btw). Despite the length of some of the later years, I am worried that we will fly through these before Eloise is ready to start on true baby books. I think we might — regardless of how faster Mr. Potter grows up in front of little Eloise — will continue with advanced reading even when that day comes (sorta like a 3-4 age appropriate books and 10-15 minutes of novel reading before bed) until Eloise starts talking on a regular basis. Should we continue with the geek dad route — maybe The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings Triology — or should we turn the classics? Nana has pushed from Friday poetry readings, but I countered with threats of limericks and Shel Siverstein. I guess I should not complain too much. I mean, it was not just Sarah stunning looks that made me fall in love at first sight; it was also the Ginsberg autobiography peeking out from her purse (and this was in Vegas). Any readings suggestions (or paths) are welcome.
