My son and his girlfriend are packing up things to
start their long journey home.
I'm praying for safe flights and their safe return. On their flight from Dubai three weeks ago, they had a free upgrade to business class. They were totally excited about that because they almost didn't sleep on the first flight and they are both tall and were grateful for the extra space.

zero, so I started buying books in the Netherlands when we visited my family.
After a couple of years I became fluent in German (my husband and I speak German together, even after all these years), I discovered Amazon.de and started reading books in German.
The kids have a school library and they bring
home a couple of books every now and then,
but they just don't like to read (although my
daughter loves audiobooks and most of the
books in my Audible library are hers).
A couple of months ago I bought this book for my daughter, who likes to draw, about drawing Manga.
We saw a Manga movie or two, before she discovered comic Manga books. From that moment on she started downloading them on my Kindle. She just couldn't stop reading. Every day she asked me if she could do some chores for me and have another book. I was so happy that she had finally found something she liked to read that I didn't mind. These books are not very expensive (4€), but if you buy five, you have spend 20€, and they are very fast reads. So, that's where the library comes in! We started going to the Cité Bibliothèque in Luxembourg-city on Saturday mornings and I am thrilled. We took three library cards, which means we can take 12 books, 6 audiobooks and 6 movies every time. I have so missed this all these years! PS: Did you know these books are read from right to left? You start on the last page and read the bubbles also from the right corner of the page to the left corner.
