And I just looked up and learned the ones I didn't know.
To be fair, I got a bit lucky in life. My mother is a teacher and had me reading at two, my sister around the same age, too. We got my niece and nephews reading about the same age, too. All of us read constantly. It's great with the kids. We just throw books at them and they go off and read quietly. Makes them easy to deal with. I've been picking up old children's book for about 13 years and giving them to my sister for the kiddos. Those along with everything else, and they probably have over 3,000 books in the house. I've got close to 1,000 around and maybe another 500 in storage. The kids have taken a few hundred of my old books, though.
Also picked up my first degree in English, took two years of Latin and law school helped. I'm half convinced that I'm nearsighted because I've had my nose in too many books.
The good part is that I'll be teaching English in a week or two. I'll slip in as much vocabulary building as possible.
You're kidding Eric! Necessary amelioration! What age-bracket?
