I posted this on my secure facebook page & I really don't care about getting anything free - but let me tell you what I've done is working so well, my kids are reading more than an hour a day. I've told them they can only play video games for the same amount they read. They are reading so long that they don't have time to play video games.

I'm loving it.

I posted this on my blog/webpage and twitter (see links below) and publicized a great free program that the public library does as well. We participate in the library program each year and the kids love it!
