Reading Kurt Vonnegut!
I got Slaughterhouse Five because I heard it was about the firebombing of Dresden. I've had the book for a couple of weeks, but I just picked it up yesterday and I am amazed! What a great author! I haven't read any Kurt Vonnegut and now I am going to go to the library and get several more of his books. Wow!
My son Mark has a tattoo of Kurt Vonnegut on his back. My ex- used to read to them at night, and he read a lot of Vonnegut's books to my boys. By the way, my boys have excellent vocabularies and are wonderful writers, and I attribute this at least partly to being read to every day! No baby books for my boys. We started reading novels to them when they were pretty young!
