Thanks for the superfineassed Lemony Snicket review. Ratlet wasn't interested when I first suggested them, but was asking about them. At a certain age, you remember, that filler is what you want to read, but yeah, it probably isn't after 40.

My daughter enjoys the lemony snickett's books.
She was given one for Christmas, and was really excited. She said, "Now I can give Britney back her's."
I have no idea what those are about but I guess I will when the movie is released on dvd.

Perfect for the burgeoning geek.

For the real wee wee little ones I LOVE the book Guess How Much I Love You.

I remember when I was a child I also enjoyed Roald Dahlís books, The Witches, The Twits, The BFG and of course James and the Giant Peach. I also remember my mother didnít like me reading some of them at the time but they were assignments so she let it be. Iíll have to read them again to see what the fuss was about.

My absolute favorite as a little girl was The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

sorry, can't be bothered to go through all the messages to see if philip pullmans his dark materials trilogy has been mentioned. I've just finished the first book. not sure if i'll bother with the others. i'm not really into fantasy stuff (although do love the harry potter books), but thought i'd take a crack at it and see what all the fuss is about. i didn't not enjoy it... just sort of seemed like another fantasy book to me. mind you, it is a fantasy book, so what did i expect?, i suppose. good if you're into that sort of thing...

narnia audio tapes

The Highest Form of Audio Entertainment Making a Difference in our World!

The Chronicles of Narnia uses the highest form of audio entertainment to teach young people about important morals and virtues that are important to anyone who aspires to be successful in our modern world. The different cast members and sounds make listening easy and exciting. I would defiantly recommend this series to anyone who is interested in making a positive impact in the world through character, wholesome living, and leadership. To learn more about the amazing new audio break though known as Radio Theater and to learn how this is being used to help young people find purpose, strength through hard times, and integrity in living, visit www.radiotheater.org. I hope you will check it out and that it will make a huge impact in your way of thinking as it has so many others!

I defenately liked the Narnia series for the younger age groups. (thats what got me into sci-fi/fantasy in the first place) And the audio series is really good. Especially for a younger person, seeing as how its not only a great story but has got alot of good morals too.

For the more mature audiences LotR is defenately at the top of my list. The Giver and the Outsiders are really good too.

And i gotta mention Eddings, he didnt strike me as a phenominal writer but he got me to read everything he wrote, in my book thats pretty good.
