    interested in reading. So I read Alex Rider books to see if they were any good. The Ranger's apprentice didn't hold him and he managed to read Percy Jackson.

    Thank goodness he found a love of mythology thanks to Percy so he reads those translated stories. (He's a teenager now.)

    The Spice must Flow!

      For every decent one, there's a Terry Goodkind with extremely disturbing stuff.

      Not trying to keep her out of the genre, since it's one of her favorites, but it's one I have to watch carefully.

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.
