Back in January, my niece, Elizabeth, challenged me, saying she could read more books than I did this year.
We're both enjoying the challenge. I sent her a purple journal to keep track of her books.
Elizabeth sent me a tee shirt from her school's Right to Read Week, saying Reading Roundup.
And, how are we doing? Here was my email from Elizabeth today.
Dear Aunt Lesa,
How many books have you read? I have read more than 70. I am still reading now so the number might get even bigger! I might even read more than 100 by the time July comes.
And, me? I've read 71 books so far, and I'm writing Elizabeth to tell her it sounds as if she's a little ahead of me.
Keep reading, Elizabeth! You're doing great. Have fun!
