Books daughter 2 owns:

Leo is teh cool dude: Books 1-8
Why is Leo so awesome??

Books given:

Leo is teh cool dude: Books 1-8

The second daughter already had that series and therefore did not "add to her collection"

Vague. Is the "she" a human?

She most probbably is not human.

Way too vague. Are the "he" and "she" actual, physical humans?

Yes, Maybe they are.

Exactly. Omission is the key to a good riddle. I'll check back when I think of a good guess.

Yes.

To elaborate more..it is a grandmother, her daughter, and the daughter of her (so daughter, mother, grandmother)

The mother had 8 books and gave them to her daughter, while her grandmother gave her 25 books

Next one:

A man was telling me on a particular occasion "The day before yesterday I was 35 years old and next year I will turn 38." How can this be?

Something similar for the first one as well...

I considered that, but silenced isn't killed. It's broken. Hence the riddle "Speak my name and I will break."

Now that thaboss thinks about it, it's probably silence. For both maybe even. Just a different way of phrasing it. And. Can everyone PLEASE try to keep it to one riddle at a time? It gets confusing and complicated when there's multiple.

Two years pass really quickly, so I'm guessing was born at midnight on New Years. Today is January first, so he was 35 then and 36 now. He will turn 37 next News Years and then 38 at the end of the year. I think?

Go back to the Wild West for this one:

Matt rode into town on Friday. He stayed two days at an Inn, robbed a bank the next day and escaped two days later on Friday. How is this possible?
