So Eva's friend N is a bright kid. Doesn't like to read. She can read, she just doesn't like to.

However, any kid who goes anywhere with us - and she does - is expected to haul a book around, and eventually Eva will open up her own book and read. I've been handing N graphic novels to limited success, but yesterday I had the best success ever. I gave her a copy of Hamster Princess, and she said "Oh, good, I'm bored. And you know what? I think I'm kind of getting used to reading."

Then she literally read it while walking and laughed out loud as she did so. Ursula Vernon is a genius, and I'm going to pop over to her journal and tell her so.
