I just read a little local article about a fourth-grader (age 9~10) who challenged himself to read more books than he did the previous summer (100) and read almost 150 books this past summer.
His favorites are fantasy and fiction, including Viking and Greek mythology.
Now, if I asked you what’s the difference between you and this kid, what would you say?
You probably think that I am accusing you with not reading enough, so you would reach for some excuses, and some self-justification, not enough time, blah blah blah.
Some of you would say that you read as much, but you read it on the Internet, emails and such.
