PLEASE tell me some of you remember the Pizza Hut Book It program!?! If you read a certain number of books each month you got a certificate from your teacher and a a star to add on your button PLUS a free personal pan pizza. LOVED IT. I also seem to remember getting a free ticket to Six Flags if I read every month??? Do any of my hometown peeps remember that?
I had no idea Pizza Hut still does this program. I can taste the slightly greasy yet crunchy pan crust right now.
Look what I found on their site!
T-SHIRTS! This one says Will Still Read Books for Pizza
This one is my favorite-
So cute. It also makes me want to sing the Reading Rainbow song. Actually I think I will. Sing it with me.

I remember as a child feeling this odd sadness that the song was almost over. I was odd. I also sang the entire Beauty and the Beast soundtrack over and over again in my room on a regular basis.
PBS you rock my world. The cool thing is my first graders last year knew the song and would willingly sing it over and over.
I started thinking about Book It yesterday after my August book club meeting. I have always had a love for reading. Even as an adult I sacrifice sleep for a good book.
I just finished reading in the past few weeks
The Help by Katheryn Stockett which I highly recommend. The movie was enjoyable, though Emma Stone reminds me of Lindsay Lohan and the entire time all I could think about is how Lindsay Lohan should not be playing Skeeter.
Come on-tell me you see (and HEAR if you’ve heard her speak) the similarity.
EDIT-After typing this I remembered that Emma Stone DID play Lindsay Lohan on SNL…that is where I made the connection
I also read Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay
Which I also highly recommend if you don’t mind sad stories. No Holocaust story is light hearted.
I am very pumped to see the movie because I LOVE Kristin Scott Thomas. She is very similar to the character I pictured in my mind, so they did a good job there!
After reading two sad books in a row I just couldn’t handle our book club’s pick for September.
One of the Best Book Series Ever!
Thankfully I’ve already read it, because I can’t handle any more sad books right now. SO my book club buddy and I decided to read this:
I can tell you after the first two chapters there is not a lot of heavy thinking involved!
What book are you currently reading? Did you do Book It when you were a kid?
