The Animorphs

Purple Polka makes me want to drop everything and read The Animorphs ASAP.

Instead, I'll put that on my TBR in February pile.

It pretty much will *be* your TBR pile for the month. I can't remember how many books are in the series, but it's somewhere between 30 and 50.

I haven't read the Animorphs books in ages, but I loved the K.A. Applegate letter Purple Polka linked to.

That many books? Yikes!

OK, for a series of only three books, try Friends and Enemies by David Field. It's only 3 books -- really doable, and very entertaining. I recommended it over on Purple Polka, too. It's a really imaginative series, with lots o humor and twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. Escapism in the best sense of the word -- plus a message in there, too.

54. There are 54 books if you don't count the "specials" and "super specials". I spent about three years scouring the thrift stores for these because my older two children were addicted. They never did much for me, but there must be some appeal!

Pardon my belated post viewing, but school is school is school. That said... YESSS!!! I am so pumped you want to read Animorphs. Can I tell you the cheating way to read Animorphs that I'm sure is pretty illegal but the author seems to know about it, which makes it okay? Oh, you want me to? Fabulous!


After you make five posts that aren't spam they let you get the entire series in pdf! No waiting for ILLs that NEVER show up! Once I discovered this I was able to finish the series quickly, as each regular book takes like an hour or two to read. It's a lot of books, but it's juvenile fiction so it's over before you know it.
