Vicbowin has always wanted to be a zoologist . Okay, there was a time she wanted to be a crane driver, but that was when she was little.
She told me last night that she was thinking it would be fun to be a librarian. This was a revelation that came as no shock to me since my oldest girl child is an avid reader.
No, no. Avid is an understatement. Voracious would be a better word.
They are having a reading Olympics at school. If the kids read 250 minutes a week they get a gold medal.
On Monday she read 120 minutes.
I was wondering if there was a platinum medal she could go for.
But there's a problem...
You see I've been trying over the years to build up my supply of children's and young adult books so that my kids will have good books to read.
The problem is SHE'S READ THEM ALL!
You want a list? Okay.
Magyk by Angie Sage
Flyte by Angie Sage
Physik by Angie Sage
Harry Potter #1
Harry Potter #2
Harry Potter #3 (I won't let her read the rest until she's at least nine)
Alcatraz and the Evil Librarians by Brandon Sanderson
The Chronicles of Narnia
Should I keep going?
I was expecting my children to read those when they were a bit older... and for them to take a while to get through them. It's taken Vicbowin 6 months, at the age of 8!
I need more books.
Last night she read for 30 minutes before we ran out of books. WE RAN OUT OF BOOKS.
Does anyone else think that's funny.
I'm at a loss for what to do. Beyond going to the library every week.
It makes me feel like the proudest mom in the world. It also makes me feel like I'm scrambling to keep up.
I have a few books that I think she'll like, I just have to hunt them down. I hear you can buy boxes of books on E-Bay for cheap. What do you think?
