In our house we read - everything. Heck as a child I would even read the back of the bubble bath, listerine, etc while taking a bath if a book wasn't handy. I'm glad that love of reading has been passed down. I noticed my son reading the CliffNotes for Atlas Shrugged last night after having finished Atlas Shrugged a month earlier (and it was not required reading - we don't do that in this family). Currently, I have a homeschooling book, a mystery book and just finished the book on cd for YOU.
