The Wodehouse stories that some friends and I once read aloud to each 
other, I suppose.

B and I take turns (one boook each) to read aloud to the rest of the 
family three or four times a week. The reader chooses the book - at the 
moment it's _The Satanic Mill_ by Otfried Preussler (definitely YA), 
but we've had Paul Biegel, Annie M.G. Schmidt, Tonke Dragt (mainstays 
of Dutch children's literature), Roald Dahl and Astrid Lindgren. As the 
kids grow older, the choice becomes wider; B read The Hobbit when they 
were six and eight (they're now eight and almost ten).

We don't intend to stop reading aloud; if we were that kind of people, 
we'd have stopped when they learned to read on their own :-)
