Too old for children’s books?

I am of course way too old to be reading 5 years+ books from the library.  I was therefore slightly worried they wouldn’t let me take any out – let alone two.  I thought maybe children would have to have their own cards and you could only take them out on that – shows how used to using libraries I am.  They let me, no problem.

So why am I now in possession of two children’s books aimed at the 5+ year old market?  Research.  Research for my children’s book about the number five dog.  I know that to write a book, I need to know what kind of thing they have in their books.  Not sure if I can get away with reading them on the tube? 

I’m going to send an email off tonight to try and get people to volunteer to be interviewed for my assignment.  I hope I get some people coming back saying they’d like to be.

I don’t feel like writing today, having a pretty rubbish day with car problems and worries about travel this weekend without said car.  I’m going to try and make myself do at least something though.
