Two of my friends and I had a get together yesterday. We got talking on reading and I ended up coming home with a nice pile of borrowed books. It was quite fun to talk about reading since most of my other friends are not quite as literary. These books are geared to the younger set but are good reads any way. It makes a nice change the giant thick tomes that I have been reading of late.
The book I am currently reading from my new stack is called Artemis Fowl. This book is wonderfully written and very enjoyable. I had avoided the whole young adult reading scene in my youth preferring the more weighty works that were in my father's book collection. I am now finding out that I missed out on some great reads but thankfully I have friends that are able to point me in the right direction. I am now of the opinion that well written works that are supposedly directed to children are still very much worth reading now that I am an adult.
