  8. I remember when I used to (have time to) read that much. We had this program at my elementary school where you take a reading comprehension quiz on the computer for every book you read. The quizzes had ten questions and I think you had to get 6/10 to pass. If you passed enough quizzes each trimester, then you got to go along on a special field trip to a buffet and they paid for all of us to eat. They also gave us medals and I got a special trophy in 6th grade for passing 1000 book quizzes during elementary school. It was so much fun and a really good program. All this to say that I think it's really cool when kids enjoy reading that much.


I love hearing what you have to say! Comments make me happy.
