I read Night of the New Magicians to both of them yesterday. Miss A's last book she read on her own was one of the Magic Treehouse books (#17 or 18 I think). She's working her way through them since we told her we'd get the annoyingly expensive hardback only Merlin's Missions for her once she read the 28 regular ones to herself.

A quilt I made for my aunt.
