We updated our status today as well. You guys are doing a great job. My list isn't numbered. I guess I should do that too. This is so much fun. When I told our librarian that we were doing this she asked if the kids get a prize at the end. I looked at her a bit confused and said "No." I think she doesn't see how much fun it is just to challenge yourself and to know that others are doing the same. Who needs a prize or marks. A reading challenge is fun all on it's own! :)

I have to admit that I'm exhausted!! I have three non-readers presently, so I'm doing a lot! ;-) Daddy has stepped in the past few nights to help, though, and that's been a wonderful thing!

Hmmph...It never even crossed my mind to offer a prize at the end of this. Like you said, "a reading challenge is fun on it's own!"

My point, with my kids, at least, is to instill the LOVE for reading as opposed to impose a love for reading based on external motivation.

Thank you both for you reading along with us! ;-)

We read so many books this week! My daughter was really sick and it was a good time to pull the books out. She could sit for much longer and listen. We went to the library without her. Between my son and I we got her so many books! I think she felt special for getting so many books from the library just for her from her brother and myself. She loved it and it took her mind off of how badly she felt.
