I have an announcement! Caleb just might finish TWO novels in a week! This is cause for celebration, and that's what he did, with a trip to the ice cream store. The library called to let us know he won an ice cream for a book review he had completed and put in a drawing. I think he is hoping to add more reviews to have a better chance at the grand prize. I'm not overly concerned with the reason behind the added interest. It makes me smile when he tells me he needs to take his book in, wherever we are going, when I tell him he should leave it in the car. I also laugh when he makes the comment, "this one is even better than the last one". I sometimes think, if I can just find a book he will really like, he will be hooked. I didn't like reading for enjoyment, or any assignment, until I was in college. Therefore, I understand his reluctance. I just hope his journey has finally begun and it will be long and rewarding.
