Hip Hip Hooray for Literacy

  I walked through the living room yesterday and stopped short. My 10 year old, Jeremiah, was sitting in a chair reading. He wasn't reading for school. He was reading because HE WANTED TO. 

What!  Are you kidding me?!

 I've had many girl readers. They read all the series...Baby-sitters Club, Judy B. Jones, Hunger Games and the latest being the Divergent books.  They read when they should be doing chores and when they should be sleeping.  I get too.  

But a boy that reads for pleasure??? My heart is racing.  Can it really be?  Okay, it is a Diary of a Wimpy Kid book - but nobody told him he had to.

There is hope for the male Aclys.
