Vince & Edda’s back to school nights are done. Great teams at both schools, I’m always impressed. The teachers are excellent, seemed determined to make it all fun & rigorous at the same time. Edda is reading Holes this year and Vince is reading Night and Odyssey. I’m having a tough time getting through any pleasure reading this year, maybe I should read what the kids are reading. I think they’ve kind of given up on having the kids read at home and then come to class prepared. For both Vince and Edda, they are going to do a lot of the reading in class. Earlier this week Vince declared reading to be so boring – the same thing page after page after page. You haven’t found the right book yet, I suggested. Though really I think the internet has destroyed all patience for long-form reading. I can’t even read long form stuff anymore and I think it’s because my mind is now accustomed to clicking on quick bits on the web.
