We survived Hunger Games. The odds were in our favour ....

Now we switch to a world of magic and imagination, danger and mysteries. Welcome to Inkheart, written by Cornelia Funke (and translated from the German by Anthea Bell).

Again, we have a guideline for reading the book in the month of April, but please do read it at your own pace and post when you have finished a certain section.

1-7 April: Chapters 1- 15
8-14 April: Chapters 16 - 25
15-21 April: Chapters 26 - 42
22- 30 April: Chapters 43 -59

Have you read Inkheart before? Or is this your first time reading it? We would love to know!

Perhaps the magic of Inkheart will inspire ideas of your own. If it does, please show us! Share them in fan fiction, poetry, stories or fan art.

I may have been a while since I've read this book, but I remember it like night and day. I was drawn to it when the description of the book said there were readers involved in the story and I thought I could relate. When I got further into the story, it combined my favorite genre, fantasy! Reading this made my mind become creative about the journeys I want to take as I am reading the book, and any other book for that matter :) I have read the book before the movie came out and I want to note: DON'T SEE THE MOVIE!! If you like Inkheart, I would further yourself into the sequels: Inkspell and Inkdeath. The trilogy made want to create a book series at the time. I did work on it as this "creation" helped me escape the depression and just flat out life issues I was having at the time.

Oh gosh how i loved Inkheart when i was younger. i was still very deep into Harry Potter and Ann McCaffery and Tamora Pierce. i remember asking my librarian, a very good friend of mine by that time, for any recommendations and she suggested Inkheart which had just come out. i read it obsessively three times before moving on to Eragon. i still remember some of the book even though it's been years and years since i read it. the main character truck cords pretty deep in my heart for her lonely nature and her bibliophile nature. it was a book that actually rekindled my desire to write again and i ended up getting into fan fiction shortly after reading the book. never wrote anything for Inkheart itself but it did inspire me to write, and write a lot,so that counts right? a highly recommended book that i'm going to have to read again.

I love Inkheart! Remembered reading it tons of time during my teen years. Recently came to find out there was a movie adaption to. So happy to hear that although it seems there won't be a 2nd part because the ending is different from the novel itself. That book was the one that got me into writing and also made me have the same habit I have till today, putting the book I read before under my pillow when I sleep :lol:

I have never read this book and I wish you guys gave me a heads up so I could go to the library. I can't get there right now. So sadly I can't join.

Bull, a heads up was given here, on March 9th and again on the 31st of March. But you still have time to go to the library, get the book -- and catch up! This will last all month long and it's only the 3rd right now. :)

Inkheart is certainly a favorite of mine! I have recommended it to many a lover of fantasy, or of books! It's a celebration, adventure, mystery, etc! I think I may have put a blurb about the book in the Monthly Recommendation threads that used to be in the Book Club. The list, if it's still around, would tell you the month and year--maybe both are archived. Prof. Opal

I've never read the book or seen the movie, but after a "Oh, I haven't been to the library in awhile" realization, I went and got Inkheart a few days ago. It turned out to be a good idea because there is absolutely nothing going on at work today and I've already read through chapter 16.

Yay for people reading Inkheart!

You have an opportunity to exercise your imaginations in Ink Splatters!

"Where?" you ask, imagining all sort of things foul and fair. Here!
