Reader News: Eva Ibbotson's Older Titles Now Available

Check the YA bookshelf next time you’re in the bookstore.  Eva Ibbotson’s hard to find adult novels are being reprinted and shelved there (she currently writes YA novels or more like for young readers). It just goes to show you that bookstores still have a big problem shelving books in the appropriate aisle and unfortunately, these books are missing their audience. This is yet another pet peeve of mine.  I can’t say that I am too wild about the covers but it’s good to see them in print. I did read The Morning Gift which I rated a B read. Ms. Ibbotson is a wonderful author. Check her out. In the YA aisle. Hey, you may find some other good YA novels to read while you’re there.

    I like the covers. I think they’re pretty. I recently bought A Countess Below Stairs.

    I’m trying to find them, but I can’t!!!

    Hey, I hang out in the YA aisle! 🙂 Sort of.

    Seriously, I’d say about one in 10 books I read can be classified as YA.

    I’m with Nath – why are her books so darned hard to find? Esp if they’re reissued – Amazon.co.uk says it can’t find “A Company of Swans” even when they have a re-issue date of Sept 2007. Arrgghh.

    Nath, you can’t order these titles online? Amazon.com has them.
    Hi Dance Chica, thanks for stopping by.
    Li – I am working on a review on a book that I recently read that is YA and it was pretty good. Some YA novels are better than the adult novels that are available out there now.

    Hmmm, I’m going to try on amazon.ca… it’s just that I don’t usually order through them 😦

    Both A Countess Below Stairs and A Company of Swans are wonderful books but Countess is my all time favorite of hers so far
