ABOUT “THIS KID” — ERIK!

Hi, my name is Erik. I love books, so that’s why I have this blog . The reason I’m doing this is for parents to approve of a book, and for kids to find an excellent book too! Speaking of kids, did you know that I am one too? I am 9 years old. I got the idea for this blog when my grandmom told me she was shopping for a book for me and didn’t know what to buy and a kid in the store told her to get me “The Strange Case of Origami Yoda”. He said it was a good book and that I would like it, so she bought it. Well, it is a good book and I did like it. I thought that if my grandmom would take the advice of a kid maybe “this kid” (me) could help other kids and grown-ups looking for books for kids, find books they like. Plus my Mom is always trying to find “appropriate” books for me so I am going to include some of her and my Dad’s thoughts on some of the books I read.
READ THIS PARAGRAPH!!!! If you do not see the book you are looking for do not worry. Tell me about it and I’ll give you my opinion. If you have any questions, ask me and I’ll try to answer it. OR if you know of a great book I might like, let me know, I am always looking for good material!! Thank you!
Your new friend, Erik 🙂

I think what you are doing is great! You are certainly the perfect person to have a blog like this. I know how much you love to read and you are very honest let me know when you get to the Percy Jackson books if you havent already read them. Have fun!

Awesome! I think you’ll really like the Percy Jackson series. ‘The Lost Hero’ is by Rick Riordan and its a new series of heros for Olympus. I think you should read the Percy Jackson series before you read it though. If you read it first though, it gives away book five. Erik -OUT

I know a number of books that I quite enjoy, though I would guess that they would be more teen/adult target audience. Have you gone back and read the old Goosebump books? I _loved_ them when I was younger (well accept for the pick-a-paths). They are worth checking out.
