we're both reading!

Ant has never been a big reader. He'll tell you proudly that he had only read three books in his life until this Christmas: Romeo and Juliet, a Star Trek book, and Fermat's Last Theorem. But for Christmas I got a copy of Bloodletting and Other Miraculous Cures and he dived on it and devoured it by the first week of January.

He then picked up The Bourne Identity (566 pages). He bought the book a whole year ago as part of a bet with our cousin, Kelsey. She was to watch a Grand Prix race if he read the book within a year. He failed to do this, and miserably. He had the book for a year and barely opened it. But he grabbed it in January and says he'll finish it tomorrow at lunch. Will Kelsey still watch a Grand Prix? It remains to be seen.

Ant has already ordered the next two Bourne books from Amazon. Both are bigger than the first. His new year's resolution is to read at least twelve books this year. I'll keep you posted on his progress.
