And it worked out. As I knew it would. But for 2 weeks, I was the evil mommy who wouldn't let her return the book until she read it.
The Babysitters Club, by Ann M. Martin. These are the books that got me hooked on reading. She likes reading, but only books that her friends tell her are "cool". Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dear Dumb Diary, Judy Moody... She balked at Anne of Green Gables, which, I have to admit, kind of hurt! But I still have the rule that she can check out 3 of her choice, and one of mommys. If she doesn't like it, it's fine, but she has to give it an open mind.
Finally, she read the book. Right away she couldn't wait to get to the library to get more. She is currently half way through #2. It's 7:46pm and my daughter is laying in bed, reading.
