No 39.

And fairy stories held me high
On clouds of sunlight floating by
Oh Mother tell me more
Tell me more…

Song: Matilda Mother
Album: Piper At The Gates Of Dawn

I don't remember being read to very much as a child. That's not to say it didn't happen, it probably did, but as soon as I discovered reading for myself I don't think I wanted to be read to any more. My reading age shot upwards and I was reading books for eight, nine, ten year-olds within just a couple of years.

What I don't know is whether I've missed out on anything by not having any memories of being read to. Were you read bedtime stories? Did you have a favourite? What do you think about them looking back now you're (allegedly) grown up?
