Just another sign summer is over. I was in the bookstore yesterday…yes there are still a few of them around. In fact, I find it amazing that a huge bookstore has opened in Oakridge Mall…and everytime I walk by, it’s got quite a few people in it.
Back to my story…. So here I am in the bookstore and there are a bunch of kids trying to buy their summer reading books. No time like now I guess.
Did that bring back memories…My girls would always wait to the last minute to read their three books saying if they read them earlier they would forget the info by the time they took the test. That was a good point…Couldn’t really argue with that.
Which is why I loved today’s story on a high school kid on Yahoo Answers who asked people to write a book report for him, since he hadn’t done his summer reading. He got a response the very next day…from the books author.The guy gave him a “what for” ,encouraged him to give the book a try, and even gave him an exclusive tip for his book report. Also told him he could listen to it on Books on Tape.
