YES YES YES!!!
On another happy reading note...... Yesterday Genna started a new book. The title escapes me, but I know it was a Halloween mystery book. (that girl loves a good mystery) I asked her to read a chapter before bed, and told her she could go read in my room so it would be quiet. A while later I went to check on her, and she had already read three chapters and begged me to let her read one more. I said OK, but that she had to go to bed right after. She obeyed and went to bed, but about 45 minutes later came out of her room saying she couldn't sleep because she couldn't stop thinking about her book and could she pleeeaaassseeee read a tiny bit more. I figured she didn't have anywhere to be in the morning, so why not? I wasn't all that surprised when a bit over an hour later she came and said she finished the entire book! It actually made me laugh a bit because I remember when I was her age and would read an entire book in a day when I had to spend time at my parent's store. (or would use a flashlight to read in bed) I love that she loves to read, and I hope she never loses that passion.
