Reading Is Fun!

Katie has now embarked upon reading the first of the Harry Potter books herself. She got the book from the library yesterday and is already up to chapter six.

Gretchen has suggested that I not tell her that we have all of the books in the library downstairs. (And two copies of book six, because I decided that neither of us needed to wait for the other to finish it that way. :) )

When Sharon was 13 or 14, we got hold of the first 3 or 4 books (all that there were at the time) and after blowing through those, she commented that she could tell they were written for younger readers than herself "because I didn't learn any new words from them".

It will be interesting to see if Katie has the same experience, even though SHE is currently younger than Harry starts out in the first book.
