Perfect-- and so true!! My twist: Adults who only enjoy adult stories do not interest me in the slightest! ;D

Not really-- some are interesting but more than a few are a bit dull!

Book snobs irk me-- My sis in law irks me when she says condescendingly: 'OOh, That's a kid book'.. or movie. She limits herself to adult mysteries only. ARGH!!

ok... mini-rant over.

Awesome quote. True story. Some of my fav novels are YA!

I love this quote! So perfect and true. A good children's book is one that any reader will enjoy. It's also one that stays with you for years and years..

And I agree with Lesa. It annoys me so much when people talk down on children's, YA, and fantasy books. I would understand if their reasoning is because they just don't like that type of genre, but if their reason is just because "OOh, That's a kid book.." well, that's the only time they'll see me roll my eyes at them. Haha.
