What’s The Eight-Year-Old reading this week?

feb12Our mostly-weekly survey of the tidbits that cross The Eight-Year-Old’s desk. This week, The Eight-Year-Old reads her first Terry Pratchett story. 

A sampling of this week’s books:

Our unusually happy reading streak continues this week with a momentous discovery. Terry Pratchett, one of my favorite fantasy writers, also wrote children’s books. What’s more, The Eight-Year-Old is exactly the right age to read them. This discovery prompted much joy on Mommyo’s part and launched more than a few giggles from The Eight-Year-Old, who read her first Terry Pratchett story on our Very Large and Very Red Reading Couch.

I’m going to be stuck with that couch forever now. The Eight-Year-Old has informed me that it’s hallowed ground.

Writer of things ranging from optical network switching white papers to genetic testing patient education materials to historical fiction set in an 1880s asylum. When I’m not scratching my head over pesky characters who refuse to do things how I want them done or dreaming of my next book (which will of course be much easier to write than the current one), my writerly self can be found blogging about life with a very curious Ten-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
