My lovely sister just bought all of the FableHaven books on sale at Costco, and so my mission while they were here was to read all of the books before she took them home. And I almost succeeded. In the two weeks they were visiting I was able to read books 2, 3, and 4. I read during swim lessons and we sat out on the camp porch reading while the kids dug in the volleyball court. We read while the kids splashed in a giant horse trough and sat reading on a grassy bank at the pond while the kids caught goldfish. These are great books, scary, but good. My lovely sister was able to finish them all and she even let me keep the last one to work on when they left. What a perfect summer activity!
