Tangerine (book 4, week 4) ... and a book giveaway!!!

Yesterday, here's what Timothy said after returning late Monday night from a family cruise: It's already Tuesday, I don't have the entire week, so I don't think there's time for another book."

Yeah, yeah.

I simply kissed him on top of his head and handed him Tangerine by Edward Bloor, a book which is on his required summer reading list, has received rave reviews, and at 323 pages Timothy will be able to finish it before we leave next week for Lake Tahoe. I also reminded him that, so far, he's been faithfully reading a book a week and it would be terrible to ruin such a stellar streak. He was skeptical, but I can be pretty persuasive.

And to make things especially exciting (and because what boy doesn't like some healthy competition?) I am giving away a copy of Tangerine to one lucky winner! You have until Sunday night to leave a comment below, and when I post next week's summer reading selection I will also announce the winner and mail you the book (it will be shipped from Amazon).

My kid reads, your kid reads. That's what I call a win-win situation.

Good luck, and happy reading!

Patrick has read 2 books so far. One for himself, Treasure Hunters by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein and The King of the Wind by Margueirite Henry.(from summer reading list). He started The Egypt Game by Zilpha Keatley Snyder, another from the reading list. I'm hoping to have a good balance of books he wants to read and the books from the reading list.(Hoping to get through the whole list)

Theresa ... someone else recommended the James Patterson's books, so we'll have to give them a try!

And I agree about a balance between reading list and letting them choose.
