      was it originally a children's book? for some reason I'd thought it was a social commentary/activist book for grownups ...

      I never cared for Oliver Twist. I know a lot of adults who love HP. I think both can be enjoyed by a wide variety of ages.

  6. Just told ds11 he isn't allowed to practice piano for more than 20 minutes. Had to set the timer for when he needs to stop. My mom never had that problem with me...

      I don't think I would have stopped him if it was writing or reading he hadn't done, but I draw the line at math!
