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

mar18Our mostly-weekly survey of the tidbits that cross The Eight-Year-Old’s desk. This week, The Eight-Year-Old takes a break from comic books and Mommyo is especially grateful for librarians.

A sampling of this week’s books:

Regular readers will recall that last week, The Eight-Year-Old took a firm stand on the subject of No Chapter Books on Spring Break Week. Spring Break would be All Comic Books All the Time, Mommyo, and There’s Nothing You Can Do About It Except Read One With Me. Well, imagine my surprise when I caught The Eight-Year-Old on our Very Large Red Reading Couch with a copy of Al Capone Does My Shirts in her hands.

Apparently at some point during the last week of school before Spring Break, The Eight-Year-Old shared her Spring Break plans with her school librarian, and her librarian wasn’t having any of it. Thank goodness for school librarians.

Scoot over, The Eight-Year-Old, Canelo and I want to read the one about the gypsy cat.

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 Nine-Year-Old at Caterpickles.com, or musing about books and the writing life at BostonWriters.wordpress.com.
