I do. My son is reading what he reads...but there are some books we read together, being that I read to him.

I started "i Know Why The Caged Bird Sings" by Maya Angelou today...

Perfect "read to your son" day since it's cold, snowy and icy...we snuggled down into bed and read. I love that...

 If I tried reading to either one of my girls now, they would look at me like a just came here from another planet.

LOL...my son has the one after this one picked out already. Some things are just better read aloud. We did "The Help" out loud, too...some make for great conversation... We love it. My 20 and 24 year olds still say they're jealous because they miss that.

No but I do read with him! He would lay on one side of the couch and I the other and we'd both have a book to read.

 No, mine reads alone before she goes to sleep usually. Her reading choices are very different to mine.

 Oh, yeah--we have a lot of ministry stuff to read and it's just easier for them to understand a lot of it if I read it out loud...

No but I read with her. She'll read her book and I'll read mine. Then we talk about the books we've read.

I'm not "allowed" to read to her anymore. From about second grade on, DD insisted that she do the reading. So she read to me. She's 15 now and still does. We're doing "Chronicles of Narnia."

My college aged son wrote a novel for a writing contest and I printed it and we plan to read it together as a family... each taking turns reading a chapter. We like to turn off the idiot box and read or tell stories.  We've done it also for Blackout Sunday (turn off all electricity for 12 hrs, from dusk til dawn) and use lanterns and candles instead of lamps. It's a great way to spend as a family. Reading brings us closer.
