In book-related news, I’d like to anounce that I’m about to make a bunch of bookstacks, something I’ve done for the last couple of years, and am doing early this year because we are celebrating Christmas on December 17 and leaving the country for sunny Baja the next day. (We did that last year too. We are becoming traditionalists, sort of, in the bloglily household.)
Anyway, the challenge this year is to find good things for a 14 year old boy to read. Biographies of insane rock musicians, stories of horrendous crimes and disasters, entertaining accounts of stuff that happened in the past (aka history), graphic novels (aka comic books), and the novel that you read when you were 14 that you really loved are all possibilities. Trouble is that I don’t know the names of ANY of these books and am hoping that you, dear readers, just might.
And if you have any movie suggestions for 14 and 10 year old boys, well, throw that in too while you’re at it, okay?
