See that boy? He has been a bookworm from day one. He practically taught himself to read. At 9 he can whip through multiple chapter books in a day.
The problem? We run out of good reading. He checked out a dozen books from the library on Monday and told me on Thursday that he had nothing to read. Apparently, I need to assign him some more manual labor.
Lest you run out of good things to read and have to resort to manual labor this weekend, here are some great reads around the web:
