Books Completed: The 39 Clues by Rick Riordan, Everest Book One: The Contest by Gordon Korman

I thoroughly enjoyed both books I've finished so far. The Tenth Case was surprisingly good - a great legal thriller, and The Invention of Hugo Cabret was a really wonderful story with amazing illustrations. I'm 100 pages into Dating da Vinci, and I'm enjoying it, but it's slower going than those two (especially Hugo Cabret). Brandon's happy about that, because he's eager to catch up.

Brandon says he's enjoying all of his books, too. He really liked 39 Clues and Everest: The Contest, but so far The Titan's Curse is his favorite (he really likes those Percy Jackson books).

And, in case you're interested, I intend to post full reviews of all the books I read today (and I may have a few guest reviews from Brandon) over the next couple of weeks. Thanks again to all who've cheered us on. We're having a blast!
