This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

#237 The House at Pooh Corner by A.A. Milne
I'm glad I finally got around to reading this one. It's listed under BBC's 100 must-read books so I always enjoy checking off one, however, I am not a fan of the Pooh books. They are just okay for me. I do love the size of the book and cover and just the feel of the book, but I was bored throughout the stories. I think kids today would find themselves quite bored with them, too, which is too bad.
I was surprised to find out Eeyore is not the character Disney created. He is a very sarcastic, negative, depressed, mean and very unlikable character! I can see why Disney would change it as no one would like him in the cartoons if he was the same character as the books.
