I have a few friends that had not read a book for enjoyment in their entire life and I prodded them to start reading some books of mine and now they like to read books more than watch tv. It was kind of cool to get them reading books and seeing the enjoyment they get from it.
My daughter and I signed up for our Library summer reading programs, she has won a couple of prizes so far, she is 6 and has read over 6 hours in the last 5 weeks.
