There are so many now that I'm seeing red.
Since Nourit one day started devouring books, I've felt this panic to keep the beast fed.
So a query last week on Facebook I post-ed,
For material she can read by a light in her bed.
Below is a compilation of what you all said.
Hopefully it all will go to her head.
Some we've read,
Some are to be read,
And some will definitely be re-read.
