ஐ Briansgirl (Book Sale Queen)ஐ (BriansGirlKate) Well done Jane! I forgot you were listing the Beatrix Potter books. No wonder you're ahead of me. lol I've got the complete set of those in Nathan's closet but havn't read them to him yet. He asks us to read him Cat in the Hat repeatedly! lol I will count (adult) short stories {like Rip Van Winkle} but I havn't counted children's books.

Well believe it or not Kate but I never read Beatrix Potter as a child so I enjoyed reading them aloud to my niece by telephone (as she lives in England) lol so that's the reason I have counted them.

I read them while stationed in Germany. I bought a Beatrix Potter set of children's china tea set from a china shop. The Stars and Stripes bookstore on the military base had a set of hardback Beatrix Potter books in a collector's box. It's got like 22 books in it. They let me put it on lay-away and each payday I bought 2 books til I had the set and they gave me the box. Later, after I got married and had kids I decorated the nursery in a Beatrix Potter theme. I'm pretty sure I read them all as I bought them, lol, but I have no idea. I really only remember a couple of them. I've got cross stitch charts for Beatrix Potter too if you're interested in any.

Thanks Robin. I think eventually I will discount the Beatrix Potter ones when I pass 50 books !

I really enjoyed it, however, as ever we all have different tastes in books ! A colleague gave me The Time Traveller's Wife and I really didn't like it at all.
