My current read
It is unfortunate though that i read ever so slowly now. For a long time I am still on the Atlas of the Quran.

The kids read
Sya : Bunny my hunny(Anita Jeram) I love her books and illustrations
Haziq : The Twits (Roald Dahl)
Jack : Blue's Clues Series

You can do this if you want. Out of this mem I now feel like I want to read The life of Pi and lovely bones. I also want to go read my Alchemist.
