On my shelf and off my shelf - NaBloPoMo#27

I finished listening to my 4th audiobook, Inkspell by Cornelia Funke. At first I wasn't sure if I could listen to this book because I'm kind of picky about audiobook narrators. It was difficult at first to make the switch from Dragon Fly in Amber's narrator to Inkspell's narrator but he grew on me.

Inkspell is the second in a trilogy by Cornelia Funke, Inkheart being the first. The third and last in the series Inkdawn is not to be published until 2008, the horror. It will be a tortuous wait. Also to come out some time in 2008 - Inkheart - The Movie. I'm very much looking forward to it. You can read some of the links about the books in the trilogy but if you are a book worm like me and enjoy a good fantasy novel you will like it. It's a great what if story, what if you could read a book and the characters would come alive and what if you could read yourself into your favorite story. It's a great read aloud book and my daughter enjoyed the first book and wants to listen to Inkspell soon.

If you are burning to read other books by Cornelia Funke like I am check these out here. I read The Thief Lord a while back and enjoyed it. I think my son will like the Princess Knight and Dragon Rider.

Before turning off the light to sleep I would read a chapter or two of Moon Butter by Max Yoho, a local author. I was looking for something light hearted and funny and Tracy was right. Next on my shelf for reading is The Revival also by Max Yoho.

I have a few audiobooks to listen to as well The Last Days in Dog Town
and Good Harbor by Anita Diamant who also wrote The Red Tent. I sure hope I like the narrator. I need a good book to listen to.

Happy Reading

  1. Glad you like Max. I just loaned The Revival to my dad. He sat in my living room reading the first couple of chapters and it was so fun to watch him chuckle.
