Another book on the girl’s shelf!

Last night AppleBlossom finished reading {aff} The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan. It is the first in the Egyptian contemporary mythological godlings series (much like Percy Jackson is from his Greek series for those who are familiar with the film if not the books). We had been reading it together. She to me, and I to her. But she became impatient and at night has surpassed me by ten chapters and completed the book! She now knows what the sibling team of Carter and Sadie Kane are up to and I have to rush to catch up.

This was an odd circumstance as we have both a hardcover copy and a Kindle copy. So she’s been mostly reading on the Kindle. FYI… AppleBlossom is 6 years old, 6.5 really and working at a mostly second grade level. When she is reading on the Kindle she is un-phased by the size of a book and just wants more. The physical book being a 400+ pages thick freaks her out.

Last night she finished and asked if we owned the next book in the series, Throne of Fire. We didn’t and she was very disappointed and asked if we could buy it from the Kindle library. I told her I would see. Usually, I try to purchase books when they are $3 or less, but she was so disappointed and had just finished a huge book (for her!) by herself! So we jumped for it.

You would think it was Christmas with the excitement that, that girl carried on with such enthusiasm! Now she’s off on a new adventure. At least with it as a Kindle book, I can download it on my profile and try to catch up to her in my “free time” in the Kane Chronicles.
