I feel like I was baiting a trap,lol!
As many of you know, my son is not a big book guy. I've tried and tried. I've even left all kinds of interesting books around in hopes that he'll pick one up. Nothing. He'd rather play his video games. Then I had a plan.
Every night before bed I go with him to his room to brush teeth, read a chapter of LOF and just talk (about an hour) It's our time to unwind and hang out without the distractions of T.V. and everything else. This time though I did something different. I snuck in his room and left a few interesting books on the floor by where we sit. After brushing teeth, ds was surprised to find the books. He immediately asked me to read a few (he never asks for books!) and he read a bit himself.
Yea!!! On dh's next day off I planning a trip to the library for some more to strew about the room :-)
