There, just submitted this site to DAYPOP.

Yesterday, I went down to Dauphine St. bookstore in the French Quarter to pick the brains of the owner and purchase some books for Alexis. She loved ’em. I found out the genre she likes is called “American Realism” (although she isn’t necessarily stuck on America).

Generally, these are books about hard times and poverty. Stuff like Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath or Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle.

Also, I got a copy of C.S. Lewis’ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I love the dedication he put there:

I wrote this story for you, but when I began it I had not realized that girls grow quicker than books … you are already too old for fairy tales … But some day you will be old enough to read fairy tales again.
