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

ComicCollection Our mostly-weekly survey of the tidbits that cross The Eight-Year-Old’s desk. This week, The Eight-Year-Old asked me to run a special all-comic book edition to commemorate the start of Spring Break Season.

A sampling of this week’s books:

It’s hard to say that The Eight-Year-Old is reading these books this particular week, because she dips into these books pretty much every week. However, with Spring Break season upon us, she has already informed me that these books will be all she’s reading while school’s out. She has kiboshed every single chapter book I’ve suggested for the Spring Break reading list, even the ones with dragons. The Eight-Year-Old means business.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go off into the corner and practice my Spring Break mantra: “Reading comic books is better than watching TV — Reading comic books is better than watching TV — Reading comic books is better than watching TV” because it’s not working yet. Must be something wrong with the way I’m saying it.

About Shala Howell

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.
