Not Enough Bookshelves: What’s Your Inheritance Book?

What’s Your Inheritance Book?

While roaming the internt I stumbled across the Orange Inheritance Collection. To celebrate the launch they asked 100 men and women to pick the book they’d pass on to the next generation.

So now I’m asking you!

What would your Inheritance Book be?

It took me a while to decide, but I had to go with His Dark Material Trilogy by Phillip Pullman. I can’t imagine the baby not getting to visit Lyra’s world, and meet armored bears and witches and feel the chill of the Northern Lights, and imagine what his daemon would be, and of course meet the boy he’s kind of named after 🙂

(also I know Kim is totally going to save Harry Potter!)


  1. Such a cool idea! My obvious choice would be Harry Potter, but I think I'd also love to pass on a book like The Book Thief or a classic like Little Women (that's the book my mum got me to read)


  2. Oh what a tough question it would either be The Piper's Son or Raw Blue. Both books that have really affected me 🙂


  3. Audrey – Yes to harry and oh yes to Little Women!

    Nic – Ah The Piper's Son would be in my top 10. I really can't wait to read Raw Blue.


  4. I love this! My book would definitely be the Queen's Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner. But I have a huge list of books I'm going to read with my kids. X)


  5. I love these books so much! I need to re-read them–it's been much too long.


  6. HARRY POTTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 😀


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour 😀
