It's funny how some of the books I have read are arduous and quite frankly a chore to get into and others, I whizz through. 'We Bought a Zoo' by Benjamin Mee, is the latter.
I will probably finish this book today and I have thoroughly enjoyed it. Whilst with 'The Passage' by Justin Cronin I mentioned that this would be better in film form, I think that 'We Bought a Zoo'

Whatever you're up to, enjoy the rest of the weekend. As today is Father's Day (in most places anyway), I'm taking my dad out to lunch this afternoon. What are you up to this weekend?
