book owl

I made this special little bookmarker for my constant reader and owl lover.  He has read the entire Harry Potter series 5 times!  He amazes me.

We are trying to get him interested in other books.  He flies right through them and goes right back to Harry. Nothing compares, he tells me.

So far he’s read the Guardians of Ga’hoole (which he actually loved and is excitedly awaiting the movie),the Percy Jackson series, Whimpy Kid,  and almost all the ‘boy’ books mentioned HERE.  Now we are trying the Hobbit and then next on the list is Hoot–it looks promising with the owls and all.  We shall see…

  1. My mouth dropped open when i saw the lovely Owl bookmark and when i read i thought oh read Percy Jackson having just watched the movie but he’s beaten me to it, so nice that he loves to read a much as he does 🙂

    I understand how he feels. I am particularly fond of Harry, too. I hope he likes The Hobbit – it’s my husband’s favorite book, and he has really good memories of it being read aloud to him as a child. He lived in an orphanage (for reals! It always shocks me to think of it) and one of the caregivers read that book to his dorm. He says it’s one of the only times he remembers being read aloud to as a child.

    Has your son read the Narnia series? Or Artemis Fowl?

    How incredible that he loves to read so voraciously at such a young age!

    Mysterious Benedict Society is very good and the Thirteenth Reality Series is also great. My daughter reads voraciously. I wish we could find everything we want at the library, but sometimes she insists on the hardback new-releases from the bookstore. (Still cheaper than the new-release video games!)

    Michael loved the Percy Jackson series!! I couldn’t buy them fast enough. We took him to see the movie the day it opened and when we were done, he rolled his eyes and said “It was nothing like the book”. So funny! He loved the Wimpy Kid too. =)

    Oh, we’ve got to meet one day. I know our kids would get along so well! I also recommend the Mysterious Benedict Society (we just read that and there are a few books that follow), and The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Oh, and I’m reading the Half-Blood Prince right now. My first time. :0)

    Have you tried/ seen the Artemis Fowl series? They’re excellent as well. I didn’t click the link to see. If so, sorry for the repeat.

    Love the owl!!!

    What cute little owls! My 11 year-old son is reading the Septimus Heap series and loves it He also really enjoys graphic novels and is anxiously awaiting the third book of the Amulet series. I second Michelle’s recommendation of Hugo Cabret – a must read!

  9. Deborah says:

    Oh yes Hugo Cabret and The Amulet! And while we’re talking about graphic novels, I’ll add The Arrival to the list. (Have we hijacked this post into a book recommendations clearinghouse? Sorry.)

    Hi Regina! Thanks for visiting me:) It’s been a long time since I’ve been around the land of blogs – and there’s just so much eye candy here! I can’t believe your guy has read all the HP books 5 times!!!! He must keep finding all kinds of cool stuff each time through.

  11. Pretty owl! I remember reading and reading and reading when I was young, too. I wish we had Harry Potter back then.

    When I was young I enjoyed The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. I think the first book is called The Book of Three.

    I bet he’d love Diana Wynne Jones’ Chrestomanci series.
