Alex and reading

Alex has become a pretty good reader. Now that he is in 2nd grade reading is a huge part of class! He is taking Accelerated Reading tests almost daily. He has to have a total of 7 points at the end of the 9 weeks. And with each book counting at 1/2 a point, he is busy every night getting through a new book, so that he can take a test the next day! He has never "loved" to read. He knows how and will read when it is something that interests him. But to read for fun, is totally out of the question.
I am avid reader! I am always reading a book and always have a book on cd in my car! I know I am a dork, but I think that reading is my escape! Always has been! I remember how excited I used to get when I got to buy new books. I would go home and read the whole book in 1 night...then not have anything to read! I still do that now! I read The Pact by Jodi Picoult in a little over 1 day. I love her books by the way! So hopefully at least 1 of the 3 boys will have my passion for reading!
