"There's nothing better than a class getting upset when you've stopped reading at a good part because it's time for them to leave. I love it when they bargain to come in for recess so they can keep reading, or when kids have release dates of books memorized and they're chomping at the bit to read it first. It's also amazing when they demand an old favorite that they've read every single week for the last two years because it makes them happy. I love that my kids love books."
