Just saw this on the new YA Book Club blog on the PW Site.
"So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray,
Go throw your TV set away,
And in its place you can install, A lovely bookshelf on the wall."—
Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
Easy for me to say. And Roald Dahl. Neither of us has/ had young children in today's TV World, with so many temptations. And not all of them necessarily bad...
Maybe don't throw away the TV, just put up a big bookcase filled with great books next to it?
