Remember these books? My 11 year old has just discovered them.

And last night as he busily looked up the word "abominable" in his handy dandy bedside dictionary (my boy's a word lover! Woohoo!), I was thinking the Choose Your Own Adventure series is a great example of literature that breaks the fourth wall.

Check 'em out! Meanwhile, I'll be plugging along on this revision...

  1. Happy Monday, Irene.

    Although I am not familiar with this set of books, I am glad that your son is such a reader! Two of my daughters LOVE to read and my other two don't really like sitting still for that long. I am hoping that they will also pick up the love for reading as they get older. Our house is filled with books, so hopefully one day, they will open one;) My fourteen year old still likes it when I read to her.

    I love the quote that you chose for today. So true!

    Hugs and love,

  2. Oh, I am so happy part of yours are readers! My youngest has dyslexia and loves to be read to but HATES to read. What a sweet mom you are to still read to your 14 year old! I do that too. :) They are never to old, in my opinion. And yes, they may become readers yet: my husband is an avid reader now but didn't really start till he was mid-twenties. Go figure... xxoo
