Oooh - Bellaires's _The House With the Clock in its Walls_ is a
great book - scary (somewhat) up until the hysterical poker playing
thing. I absolutely second the Bagthorpes, btw. Along with DWJ, one of
the things that I reread now and wonder: "I had the sophistication to
enjoy _that_ when I was nine!?" Only more so, given all of the references
to various cultural things that I'm fairly sure I didn't know about when I
"What can I say about the Bible? The greatest book ever, it is more than
a book. If you buy one book EVER, this is the one. Non-believers need to
read this in any form. I don't want to spoil the end, but let's just say
YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE."
