K: You read a magazine last time. Try a book this time.
K: I'm reading several excellent books right now.
Z: (Exasperated.) Well, you didn't let me see any of them.
K gives the books to Z and goes back to working on NOW.
An hour later...
Z: Mom, I read past 30 minutes. This book is good. I see you only got to page 40. I'm past that.
K: Yes, you passed me.
Two hours later...
Z is in the recliner when K walks into the den.
Z: Mom, this is so funny. Here's this one part when he gets kicked off a farm. You don't know about that do you? I don't want to ruin it for you, but....
Z goes on to tell K the rest of the plot.
Yes, Z isn't reading when K doesn't make good books available to him.
Guysread is a great place to go to find books that might interest our youth.
