Being an introvert, reading is one of life's joys: curled up in bed at the end of another crazy day, nose in a book, I can feel my body and mind replenish. Amy is the same way. Our kids are much more extroverted, but we're happy to see they are acquiring a love of reading for pleasure too. Monthly, we let them pick something out of the Scholastic Book Club catalog - remember those? - and when those new books arrive it's like Christmas all over again in our household: the kids blitz through their chores, ask for their new arrivals, and then dig in until they have to be pried away for dinner or bedtime. This is a good sign.
