I know we have 'what to read now' threads. I don't want to post over in the gifted threads for a number of reasons.
My DS just turned 12 and declared himself a full time Adult book reader. I have no problem with this, I don't censor nor I don't limit materials. The issue I have is DS seems to be interested in science fiction and that is not my genre of choice.
Right now he is reading "The HitchHikers Guide to the Universe" and "H G WELLS, 7 Novels".
As a surprise, I picked up the first book in the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire and that too is a hit so I can probably get the others this weekend.
He did love the original Alice in Wonderland last year.
I might suggest Ray Bradbury?
This child can read upwards of 1000 pages a week so keeping him in material has always been a challenge. I don't mind giving him free range in the bookstore or library but some adult material might be a bit umm 'too adult' ya know??
