“Geek Dad” book list

Here’s a list of favourite kids’ books from “Geek Dad”: “67 Books Every Geek Should Read to Their Kids Before Age 10”. A pretty good, eclectic list, though of course very subjective.

I enjoyed scanning through this, and I’m always looking for titles I’ve never heard of. It’s particularly useful because it often includes age recommendations. More useful would have been to group them by ages, but that’s just me…

While I do like this one, I have to say I’m getting a little fed up with these “bucket lists” and “must do” lists. You know, the ubiquitous “1001 books to read/places to see/songs to hear/etc before you die” lists. Seems to be the favourite way to pad out a shopping list into a book.

p.s. After a brief labour disruption, my library has just reopened, so I’ll be able to get back to book reviews! Stay tuned…
