Who's book is that?

“Mamma, who’s book is that?”, asked my older one.
“Erm”, I muttered looking sheepish. “I bought it for you, but I like it so I’m reading it. May I?”
He took the book from my hand. “Percy Jackson”, he read aloud. “Can I read the book now? I mean after you finish?”
“Yes, you may. But you will enjoy it more in a couple of months.”
“Okay. But if I can’t read it yet, why have you bought so many of them?”
How do I tell him that even though the book is meant for young-adults, I like it too.

Percy Jackson is awesome, without doubt. I'm glad you enjoyed it, and knowing your son, I'm sure he will too :)

I like reading stuff meant for younger people too!

I enjoyed some kid's books a lot too. I would often read them aloud to my kids so that I could enjoy them along with them. A fave was The Secret Garden. I think my daughter still loves that book.

As a Rick Riordan fan, I am with you! Great books! My kids want to read them, too, and it's hard to explain that they won't be ready for the content for several years!

LOL Nutty, I keep telling myself it's all kids' stuff and keep checking with my library for the sequel!

Natasha - A well-written book is a well-written book, whether it's "intended" for YA or adult audiences. Why shouldn't you savour a good YA book? Besides, it gives you an experience you can share with your son.
