New Releases - Coming Next Week!
These three reads, all coming October 2, are blowing us away!!!
We’ve been celebrating 50 Years of Pern all month, getting ready for the release of Gigi McCaffrey’s Dragon’s Code, and October 2nd is just one week away! We’re almost done reading it, and the love and nostalgia brought on by this book have been downright magical. Erin’s been acting like a kid again. (She probably shouldn’t be jumping on the furniture so much, but what can you do?)
But wait! That’s not all!!! (Ha! We’ve always wanted to say that.)
Two more of our most anticipated releases of the year are also coming out on the same day!!!
New on the Blog!
What do you think about audiobooks?
We resisted them for a long time—partly out of habit, and partly out of the idea that listening to an audiobook isn’t reading. It’s letting someone tell you a story.
And then it hit us. That’s the best thing about them.
Books didn’t come first in the evolution of story. Narration did: the mythologies we dreamed up by firelight in the caves of our ancestors; the fairytales we invented to pass long, winter nights; the magical hopes and dreams we shared beneath the harvest moon.
The magic of books came later, when we began to write them down. But books weren’t the first magic.
Our Latest Review!
Eragon, by Christopher Paolini
At its heart, Eragon is a coming-of-age story. A fifteen-year-old farm boy discovers he’s destined to become a Dragon Rider, but the grown-up world of politics and war are a lot more than he bargained for.
One of the best things about this book is that the life lessons are so accurately portrayed. Even when they’re painful. Eragon argues passionately for his beliefs, standing up for his ideas of right and wrong, only to realize later, through his own experience, that things aren’t always so simple.
That’s part of growing up, with or without dragons.
