DS (almost 10) has been reading the chapter books on our library's kids section since he was about 3.5 and has read pretty much everything there that interests him. There are plenty of classics I could give him (and we are working through several), but I am looking for any ideas people might have for good fiction or interesting non-fiction from the young adult/adult sections that might be appropriate (i.e. no extremely graphic violence or "adult" content) and that he might like. His recent favorites include the LoTR books, Sobel's Longitude, Singh's The Code Book and LeGuin's Earth Sea trilogy. I used to have time to preview all the books I gave him, but I can't do that any more. I have scanned lots of lists on Good Reads, Amazon, and other places, but I would appreciate any suggestions from others in a similar situation. We keep leaving the library empty handed and I know there are good books out there. I have plenty of college-level lists form my tenure-track days, but he isn't ready for some of those yet.
