New Bedtime Story

Our evening routine with D involves his reading a book out loud to us, and then one of us reading out loud to him. We alternate between one-shot books and lengthy books that we read a chapter at a time. Spouse and D just finished reading The Graveyard Book the other day, and have started a new book -- The Princess Bride.

Spouse is starting with Billy and his troubles at school (skipping the whole beginning with the book being given to his son for the boy's birthday). As he reads, he describes the whole "what are we going to do about Billy?" part, and I am struck at how much this sounds like D -- sports-obsessed, great imagination, reluctant reader. Hunh. Maybe D will go on to a career like William Goldman.
