The Four Series

Some series I'm considering reading to my girls.

The Deed of Paksenarrion, 1st book: Sheepfarmer's Daughter, by Elizabeth Moon.
The Honor Harrington books, 1st book: On Basilisk Station, by David Weber
The Belgariad, 1st book: Pawn of Prophecy, by David Eddings
Arrows of the Queen, 1st book: Arrows of the Queen, by Mercedes Lackey

I have never read David Weber, but I liked the other three a lot. I remember thinking Arrows seemed a little juvenile, so that might be good. Paksenarrion was somewhat gritty -- wouldn't be my first choice for pre-teens. I LOVED Belgariad as an adolescent but the series definitely goes downhill.

Other possible choices: Brian Jacques (Redwall), Ursula K LeGuin (Wizard of Earthsea), Lawrence Watt Evans (Misenchanted Sword, etc), Joel Rosenberg (Guardians of the Flame), Heechee (Frederick Pohl), Isaac Asimov (I, Robot)

You know, I don't think I've ever read the Lawrence Watt Evans stuff, I'll look into it.

It is very interesting for me to read this article. Thanx for it. I like such topics and everything that is connected to them. BTW, try to add some photos :).
