I was the kid who read with the torch under the blankets (no duvet back then!) and last night I found myself in the same situation - telling my daughter to put the book down, turn the light off and go to sleep - it was a school night after all. And her response? 'Only if you read it after I've finished it.'
And the book? Small Steps by Louis Sacher. Now I read Holes and recommended it to her so it seems fitting that she should read Small Steps and recommend it to me. For me to have passed on my love of reading to my daughter makes me a very happy writer.
