Stepped for life
Mrs Moon Monkey never misses a chance to remind me that I read an entire book while she was in labour with our first child. Personally I can't see the problem - it was 36 hours, FFS, and a lot of the time - especially during the build-up to the main even - there was very little I could actually do to help. So I read. Apparently that was a crime somewhere between ethnic cleansing and selling babies on the internet.

I was delighted to find, in a book, advice to expectant fathers which included the suggestion that they take something to read in the maternity ward to pass the time... surprisingly, even this didn't placate her. Women are strange.

The "baby" is about to turn 10, and is herself a voracious reader... I wonder if there's a connection?

Maybe you shouldnt have been
reading 'Women - don't they moan about stuff?' though.

Perhaps this should have been agreed
at the moment of conception.

I read a book too.
Tom Sharpe's The Wilt Alternative. All of it. She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed was out of it on gas and air. She didn't seem to mind. When the young Grooverette was borne, the nurse took one look at my wife and handed the baby to me. Good job I'd finished the book.
