On Saturday, the boys had Holiday Book Fair at Barnes and Noble. A portion of the sales generated December 1st through 5th (today) are donated to the boys’ school library fund. While at the book fair, I captured Joe and his friend taking a break to read a little. This picture was not staged, though Joe did raise his book a little higher in an attempt to block his face.
Before we left the store for the day, I purchased the book “The Lightning Thief” by Rick Riordan. The boys and I are reading it at night, just before bed, and we are enjoying it. If you need to purchase a book or book-related item for yourself or someone else, please consider making the purchase through Barnes and Noble today, December 5th. If you use code #10925782 when you check-out, a portion of your purchase will be donated to Joe’s school. Thank you!

I love to see kids reading. It seems to be a forgotten joy for so many. 🙂
Me, too, BD.
Oh, they look absorbed.
They were. So much fun to see.
What a great program to grow school libraries. I love Barnes & Noble. Great photo, too.
Thank you, Patti. I quite liked the fundraiser idea. Sure beats buying wrapping paper or cookie dough. 🙂
There is nothing better than seeing kids sitting and reading quietly!
Amen, Darla. Though, watching the kids clean up their room without being told would be a neat sight to behold, too. 🙂
I love your posts and they help me alot with my 7 yr. old grandson in Pittsburgh.
The picture of Charlie and Joe playing with that game that was shaped like aa ball, but yet something inside that had to be kept on the track. Sorry, I don’t remember the name of it. I sent that picture on to my daughter and she purchased that game for my grandson for Christmas from me. Have to get a check off to her. She was wondering how “I” would know about something like that.
Keep up the good work on your blog, it sure has ccome in handy for me more than just a few times.
I am glad I could help, Libby. 🙂 It’s called a Perplexus, and the boys have played with it every day since it came into the house. I am certain your grandson will like his.
