My 12-year old daughter is a self-described bookworm. Not only does she love to read, she loves to share everything that she’s read. Since she’s very talkative, I know a lot about the books she read, but there are times when I get tired of hearing about them.
Yesterday Kendall she told me that she wanted to know if A Tale of Two Cities, was an appropriate book to read. Apparently it’s Tessa’s favorite book. (Tessa is a character in a series she has read.)
She got excited when I told her she could download it on her Kindle and even more excited when she bought it and Great Expectations for only $.99.
I’m fortunate to have a daughter who spends so much time reading, but I’m even more fortunate that the books she reads encourage her to continue.
That always makes me smile.
