I can't express just how thrilled I am that both boys love to read. We just received a packet of "Froggy" books via Scholastic, and the micro dude steadily reads through them, out loud or in his head, going back to re-read the funniest parts to us again.
His big brother came across a graphic novel edition of the Red Pyramid (an Egyptian-themed series by the author of Percy Jackson,) and we both liked it, so I ordered the whole trilogy in novel form.
Now that pop culture writers all talk about binge-watching TV, I finally have vocabulary for the way I read (prior to having kids) and how Q-ster reads now. Binge-reading! It's an all-encompassing, all-consuming activity. He started book 1 on Saturday morning, finished book 2, and was halfway through book 3 by Sunday night. Yum.
