2010’s reading list recap

This is the pile of Kindles we have in Florida. Everyone has one in this apartment, except for John.(now even including Timmy since he inherited Patrick’s 1st generation when Grandma upgraded Patrick to a 2nd generation Kindle. He’s starting to really read on his own, I figure he’ll grow into it.) Jack’s 1st generation Kindle died this year so Amazon sent us a replacement 2nd generation Kindle. I guess Grandma felt bad for Patrick and thought he should have the same as Jack. At any rate, these boys read like CRAZY so they can have whatever Kindle they’d like!!
