As loyal readers of PinkMeNot know, Chloe participated in a school read-a-thon to raise money for the American Cancer Society, in honor of her aunt who is currently waging war against breast cancer.
Well folks, the results are in. Chloe read more than 2,600 pages in 25 days and raised $222. She’s a crazy reader. In fact, she’s apparently the most voracious reader in her class. Since the beginning of the school year, Chloe has read more than 12.500 pages (yes, the teacher keeps track). If that doesn’t merit some kind of prize in this age of Wii and Playstation, Internet and texting, I don’t know what does.
Her Grammy pledged $0.02 for every page read. I pledged $0.04 for every page read. We’re suckers. But at least we were suckers for a good cause.
Her favorite kind of book is the thickest kind of book. More value for her money, as far as she’s concerned. And all the better if it’s part of a series of really thick books. I’m telling you, she’s a crazy reader. I’ll take that kind of crazy any day.
