Pick A Place: Literary Light-Up

I think technology is great, and I appreciate the convenience of e-readers and digital books. Websites like Project Gutenberg (www.gutenberg.org) make classic literature available to literally everyone who can connect to the internet. But, watching a kid actually read for pleasure isn’t something a lot of us parents get to enjoy. So, maybe we can do something that might spark an interest! Check in with your local bookstore and see if they are having any readings or other events that kids can attend. Get your kids into those stores and let them wander around and (carefully) get their hands on the hundreds of books available. Maybe you’ll walk out with a purchase of something great and maybe that will be the spark that will let the e-thingy or the i-thingy take a rest for a little while.
