Jonah is half way through The Lightning Thief. He said that he was so engrossed in the book during DEAR time at school (that's "Drop Everything And Read Time" aka free reading period) that he forgot where he was, until a girl startled him with a cough. He read last night, instead of getting his 30 minutes of video game time. That' s huge, people.
(Thanks to Aunt Tammy for this great gift.)
