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 The third and last in the series Inkdawn is not to be published until 2008, the horror.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.
