** May 2014 Challenge – Books about BOOKS! **

The Aussie Readers group on Goodreads has the May Challenge – Books about BOOKS!;

For this month’s challenge we are going to immerse ourselves completely in Books about BOOKS!
May is starting to cool down, so what better time than to curl up with books, books, and even more books!

And my pick is;

Inkheart Cornelia Funke – Inkheart (Inkworld #1)
Twelve-year-old Meggie learns that her father, who repairs and binds books for a living, can “read” fictional characters to life when one of those characters abducts them and tries to force him into service.
Characters from books literally leap off the page in this engrossing fantasy. Meggie has had her father to herself since her mother went away when she was young. Mo taught her to read when she was five, and the two share a mutual love of books. He can “read” characters out of books. When she was three, he read aloud from a book called Inkheart and released characters into the real world. At the same time, Meggie’s mother disappeared into the story. This “story within a story” will delight not just fantasy fans, but all readers who like an exciting plot with larger-than-life characters.

VERDICT: ★★★.★ (3.5)
