celticdragonfly: (Maggie Xmas 2006)

When I went in to check on Maggie this morning, she was asleep in bed with Rorik, with a paperback copy of Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold in bed beside her.

No, I do not have an explanation for this. I mean, it would demonstrate good taste on her part - if she could fully read yet. Although I really wouldn't suggest that as a starting point for the series.

...That's funny!

I know I don't comment much, but your kids are absolutely adorable, and Maggie is going to grow up into a real beauty.

Spoke like a true fannish parent! Not "I don't that's appropriate reading material for her age," but "No, no, that's not where to start the series!" :D

Well, yeah. She'd be pestering me with a bazillion questions. It'd be so much easier if she just started with Shards of Honor.

Although it got me thinking, wouldn't a juvenile "Young Miles" series be a kick?

The adventures of Miles and Elena and Ivan, growing up maybe. Many incidents have been mentioned in passing, these could be fun!

Happily, she has not yet accumulated the weight of life and regrets that would make MEMORY in any way intelligible to her. Gods grant that day be far, far away.

Maybe Rorik was reading it. After all, it is the book that introduces Zap (I think that's the name, isn't it?)...

Actually, I've been reading it off and on. On reflection I may have been reading it while waiting for her to get ready for bed, put it down to do her bedtime story, and forgotten it there.

It's not the first classic SF she's read:
