The Graveyard Book

I just finished this book the other day whilest travelling. I thoroughly enjoyed the story in more ways than one. I found the novel transported my mind to a place full of imagination. The actual reading part didn't take that long as I was very curious to see what would happen next therefore the novel was close at all times - ready to soak in a few minutes here and there when I could. I would gladly recommend this, but to be honest unless your child is a good reader I might suggest waiting until he or she is older - the novel can be confusing at times and therefore requires your full attention.


On a side note: IS THIS BOOK CLUB STILL ACTIVE?

I hadn't read the last few books due to summer vacation, my daughters activities and school beginning. I enjoyed the first few books and discussions and then I stopped getting the list/info so I wasn't sure what books were next-or they came in emails that I missed! I didn't know about the graveyard book or the girl with the dragon tattoo. I would love to continue again. Could someone update the reading lists? Currently, I am reading The Omnivore's Dilemma, which is nonfiction but very interesting! :)

Yes and no...to your question. I've struggled to figure out where I post my comments other than just at the end of posts here. Other than that, I've moved into a new home this summer, so the past month and a half have been beyond my control. I think once the back to school, end of summer push is over, you'll find more people back to it...I hope?

Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity

Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
God believes in you.
