You are never too old to be read to

My roommate Corinna and I are big proponents of read-aloud books. It all started about four years ago when all six of us would sit in the living room of our college apartment reading different books. Friends would walk in and be totally freaked out because we would just be sitting there, all together, reading to ourselves. Eventually it got to the point that one of us would start laughing at something in a book and the others would be dying to find out what was going on. Thus started the apartment read-aloud book.

We read anything from picture books:

To memoirs:To "medical" books:To YA novels:This was a tradition I carried on with new roommates, and now, after three years apart, Corinna and I are roommates again and we had reinstated this age-old tradition. We began by reading Ally Carter's hysterical book, Cross My Heat and Hope to Spy.

We can't wait to read the next book in this series, Don't Judge a Girl by Her Cover. (Okay, I can't wait.) And now Ally is getting ready for her book tour, which means she will be reading part of her new book aloud herself.
