Adult books when you were a child; Young-Adult books now that you’re grown; Picture books just for kicks … You know … books not “meant” for you. Or do you pretty much stick to what’s written for people your age?
This is funny because I regularly lament the lack of age-appropriate books in my childhood. Apparently, until there was Harry Potter, there was no money to be made in publishing tween books. So I was reading Stephen King in the 5th grade. And don’t get me started on V.C. Andrews.
While I read the Potter series, I have not picked up Twilight, The Hunger Games or anything by The Golden Compass guy.
There are just too many books to read and I need a compelling reason to go back to the YA genre.
However, I have been reading books with my nephew Alex, age 6. More than a few Scooby-Doo mysteries. Abe Lincoln’s Hat (pictured), which I may have mentioned before, was awesome. Oh! And the Duck books.
I can’t wait to start debating the merits of S.E. Hinton with him.
