A familiar sight in my home is my daughter lying on the sofa in the living room with a book in her hands. Like her mother, she loves reading. She reads books that have been given to her as gifts, books that she has bought herself, books that she borrows from the library, and books that she downloads onto her iPad. She recently began the Unwind series by Neil Shusterman and is so engrossed in the story that she forgets everything else.
In order to prevent the book from tempting her, she left it in her locker at school. In this way, she could focus on her homework and not pick up the book to read a few pages (which then turns into a few chapters). How is that for a non-reading strategy? It certainly works for her – though she is suffering a little from withdrawal symptoms 🙂
