"Just for Fun" Reading

*Update: I have a Goodreads account and so I don't update this page anymore. But I can't bear to delete it. So...it will stay, as an archive.

This is a list of books we are reading just because we want to.  Mark has always been a newspaper reader, still is, everyday, cover-to-cover.  Earlier this summer, however, he challenged John in reading through the first book in the Hunger Games series.  And now he's hooked, prowling my bookshelves and reading at a crazy rate! (I love it!)  And the challenge worked for John as he is reading all the time now - for fun - 'cause he wants to.  Yay!  Kate has always loved reading.  I've actually had to tell her to put her book away - many times.  The tough spot right now is that she technically qualifies as a teen reader but...I don't feel that she needs to completely make that leap yet.  There is still SO much to read before that.  So, we're comprising and talking and trying to find an okay ground to read on.  Since I have to read my book club books, as well as, the mother/child book club selections, I will rarely have books listed on this page - mostly only during the summer months.
