I'm tired of waiting for Inkdeath to come out. It's there! We just need a translated copy! Anyway, the release has been pushed back to October. Boo. Anyone else read Inkheart and Inkspell?

I've found my old copy of The Valkyries by Paulo Coelho. I got it in a trade with a friend years ago. I gave him Veronika Decides to Die by the same author. I'd already read that one and loved it. Something about the beginning of The Valkyries has never captured my attention, though...but maybe it'll work out this time. I'm sure that the book is good...I have faith in the author...it's just the beginning. :)

My oldest is currently reading those books.
We have been challenged to find him books that are on par with his abilities but still age appropriate. being_ba's partner suggested these. He was psyched when I told him October. He wants it for his birthday.

They're such good books. The middle one (Inkspell) is my absolute favorite. Ha, glad someone's happy that it's coming out in October! How old is he? Lol, I feel like such a kid right now.

If anything else that he might like comes to mind, I'll drop you a line. :) (Age appropriate, of course. I read a lot of children's literature)

yeah, it really is a challenge with him.
He is 10!
but he also reads on a college level.
The joys of having a brilliant and mildly autistic kid.
He loves sci-fi fantasy stuff... and I have been wracking my brain to think of all the books I read when I was into all that.
Like, Would Pern be too girly for him? Is Dune too much politics? Donaldson is a little too much sex and violence. Asimov might be over his head developmentally.

Cuz' he is certainly capable of absorbing the material.
