EB and I were talking about books the other day. He mentioned that a friend of his got a pound every time he finished a book.

I looked a little surprised at this - it's never occurred to me to have some kind of reward system to get the kids to read books.

EB then said that he didn't need a pound to finish a book, as he got a reward anyway.

What's that, EB?

Well, I get to find out what happens!

I grin.

And! says he. I get to start a new one.

That's m'boy

o.0 A pound a book? Wish I'd know to pull that one on my folks, kerrrching! If it had been by weight I could have made a mint from my dad's hardback collection of Dickens. Apart from actually enjoying reading and learning.. oh wait.

Dude? A pound a book? I've already read 60 books since the first of the year. Can I haz my monies nao?
We were never paid to read as kids, we just read for reading's sake.
Go EB!
