Why don’t we all agree to read a book a month, but we each pick our own. Then, at the end of the month we all do two things: 1) we all review our books, give a favorite quote, a highlight, say if you’d recommend it for our kids to read –something—anything (by the way, when I say “book” I really mean anything readable. It could be the newspaper, the Ensign, Money Magazine, books of scripture. . . . etc. Just so we can share what we are learning, thinking about, liking,. . . etc. Maybe have some of our kids report too). 2) give any recommendations for the next month (that way if some people want to read the same thing, they can).

There he explains, in his strange and garbled English, that he was blowing dreams into the minds of children, and that the other giants who live in the desert -- and are twice his size -- eat children all over the world. He, though, is the Big Friendly Giant (BFG), and eats nothing but disgusting snozzcumbers. But when the other giants head to England to eat children, Sophie hatches a plan, involving dreams, the Queen of England, and the BFG, to stop them once and for all.
