After seeing a stack of books on the table my father says "it's the summer, you have no school, and you are going to read?!?" And I respond "yeah!" The truth is books keep me entertained as much as music does. First on the list is the very much talked about book by Jay-Z called Decoded. The book and its 297+ pages are intimidating, but a picky 10 year old with a keen eye for picture-books wouldn't be disappointed. There are pictures galore. And words too. This should be interesting.
