I‘ve read this gorgeous book in print, so this time I listened to the audio. Gaiman did an excellent job (of course!) as well as the rest of the full cast - an excellent production! If you have not read this book, I highly recommend it!

My first Gaiman book and I loved it - fell in love with Bod (a boy who grows up between the world of ghosts and the living, a human boy raised by ghosts, hunted by Jack ) It was sweet and funny and sad and a mystery (who is Jack) -

#TBR #ReadingUpdate #CurrentlyReading

wanderinglynn Love Gaiman‘s books! If you like audiobooks, I highly recommend the audio version too because Gaiman reads it. 🖤 5mo

Thx for the tag @TheSpineView

1. Sometimes - but if I do I'm not going to enjoy the story as much -
2. Harry Potter and I think Thursday Murder Club will be fun
3. no, but some turn me off - teenage girl, moody, hates her father, then has life changing experience where she begins to see value in her dad (yes, you know what series I am talking about)
4. family, friends and books

Want to play @Gissy and @Traci1 ?

TheSpineView You're welcome! 😊 5mo

HAPPY BOOK FAIR DAY! 🎉🎉🎉 This week the library has a summer reading book fair and all kids and teens who have completed their summer reading logs get a free book! 😃💕📚 It was my first year ordering books for this and as you can tell, I'M HYPED! 😂🤣 So far, the tagged book has been super popular and it brings me such joy to be able to hand teens and teens a book by one of my favorite authors! #librarylove #librariansoflitsy

RaeLovesToRead I read the (2 volume) graphic novel version of this. It was gorgeous! 💕 6mo
Clare-Dragonfly Oh my gosh, that‘s the best! 6mo
Hooked_on_books Oh man, giving out free books! You‘re like Santa Claus today! 6mo
SaunteringVaguelyDownwards I snagged the New Kid graphic novel by Jerry Craft as my summer reading prize! Was excited I didn't have to choose from the "adult" books. 6mo
Branwen @RaeLovesToRead Oooh I will have to check out the graphic novel version! 😍 @SaunteringVaguelyDownwards That is so cool! We're also pretty lenient about people choosing books. We've had quite a few younger kids pick from our teen graphic novel picks! 😃 @Clare-Dragonfly It really is! 😃💛 @Hooked_on_books That is exactly what it feels like! 😁💕📚 6mo

Another great book I got to read for my classes! Disappointed because my small class of older students weren‘t at all excited to read or interested in the book, but I loved it. About a boy who is raised by ghosts and a vampire in a graveyard and uncovering the mystery of how he ended up there. So good and definitely recommend for older students

This might be one of the cutest things I've ever experienced. Apparently, Rumpel loves being read to! 😻💕📚 When I open a book and start reading out loud she runs over, jumps in my lap, and pays attention! Usually after a little while she falls asleep in either my lap or on my chest. I'm tagging The Graveyard Book because that is what we're reading together currently. (we're I'm page 21!) She loves it! And Neil Gaiman apparently! 🤣😂 #rumpel

Book 3, audio

Neil is not only a good author, but he's also a good audio narrator!

This is an extended version of a short story that was in M is for Magic. I liked the short, and I enjoyed getting more of Bod's growing up.

Don‘t even get me started on this fantastic novel by one of my fave authors of all times. Who doesn‘t want to hear the spellbinding story of a baby that is reared by ghosts in a cemetery? And what adventure might befall this supernaturally counterfeit family? I guess you will have to read. I have several times!

quote
claudiuo
Graveyard Book | Neil Gaiman

Delighted to find Neil Gaiman‘s Newbery Award Acceptance Speech at the end of this book; lots of great stuff in it but I like this the most:

“I had forgotten what fiction was to me as a boy, forgotten what it was like in the library: fiction was an escape from the intolerable, a doorway into impossibly hospitable worlds where things had rules and could be understood; stories had been a way of learning about life without experiencing it...“ ⬇

claudiuo “... or perhaps of experiencing it as an eighteenth-century poisoner dealt with poisons, taking them in tiny doses, such that the poisoner could cope with ingesting things that would kill someone who was not inured to them. Sometimes fiction is a way of coping with the poison of the world in a way that lets us survive it.“ 13mo
claudiuo Also:
“Reading is important.
Books are important.
Librarians are important…“

I enjoyed this, but it's not a new favorite. Didn't fully connect with any of the characters and I found the plot confusing at times (though that may have been partially due to listening to the audiobook). I did like the supernatural elements as well as the world-building #wintergames #wintergames2020 #teamreadnosedreindeer #readyourway #crushtherush @StayCurious 11 points. I will make weekly wrap-ups for readathons and tally those points there
