Kenneth Weene's insight:
Some great reading ideas, but boy did they miss the boar when it comes to Maine. I mean, sure Cider House Rules was a good read, but seriously when they could have voted for the Beans of Egypt Maine or even better Broody New Englander?!

Now, if you want to savor Maine, here's a link that you want.

Can't Buy Me Love (Of Reading)

Can't Buy Me Love (Of Reading) | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
Summer's in full swing, and parents are trying all kinds of things to keep their kids reading. Here's a guide to what works and what doesn't.
Kenneth Weene's insight:
The best way to get kids to read is to read with them. Discussing a book brings it to life. Also, reading the same book and talking about it makes the kid feel more adult as well as helping them to learn new concepts and more difficult vocabulary that they might not master on their own. That said, might I suggest that you visit http://www.kennethweene.com to find some great books, stories, and essay to share with tweens and teens, as well as good books for your own enjoyment.

What were Obama's favorite childhood books?

What were Obama's favorite childhood books? | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
On a recent visit to a Washington library, Obama told students that he doesn't have much time for 'fun' reading these days. But he also eagerly shared the titles that he enjoyed as a boy.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

What, not one of my books on his list?! I wonder if I can send him a couple. I think he'd enjoy "Broody New Englander." Oh, "Memoirs From the Asylum" might give him ideas about how Congress functions. Then "Tales From the Dew Drop Inne" might help him understand the GOP. Of course, "Times to Try the Soul of Man" would be a great pick if he really cares about what the CIA and NSA might be up to. I'll leave "Widow's Walk" out, the Secret Service might decide I was a threat.

5 good books I fear I may never read | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
It's sobering to think of carrying on into next year the weight of all the unread books on one's nightstand.
Kenneth Weene's insight:

Now if he had Broody New Englander on that pile, I'd be upset; but I bet he took a gander at the first page and read the whole thing right off. Hope you'll follow Danny's lead. https://twitter.com/Ken_Weene/status/548507051476152321

Dyslexie: the chubby-ankled font that makes reading easier for dyslexics

Dyslexie: the chubby-ankled font that makes reading easier for dyslexics | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
By weighing down the characters and distorting similar letters, this new typeface pins words firmly to the page
Kenneth Weene's insight:

If this actually makes it easier for dyslexics to read, it will be a wonderful contribution not only to education but to mental health. So often reading has been a devastating roadblock in the development of self-esteem.

How many books did you read this summer?

How many books did you read this summer? | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it

Remember how great it was when you learned to read your own chapter books; it still is that great.

Kenneth Weene's insight:
How many books did you read this summer? If you're like most people, you maybe read one and dipped into a couple of others. So many things to do; right? Of course, most of them didn't get done either. Here's a suggestion just for you, set aside some time every day to read. Make sure it's not too much time, but enough to relax and enjoy. Start with one good book and finish it before you jump to the next; no piles of books to waste your time rifling through. If you use an e-reader, same rule, one book at a time. I suggest starting with something short or perhaps an anthology so you can have a sense of success right off. And, of course, most importantly, make sure you read on of mine.

Here's What President Obama Is Reading This Summer

Here's What President Obama Is Reading This Summer | enjoy yourself | Scoop.it
From Pulitzer-winning fiction to a biography of George Washington
Kenneth Weene's insight:

I'm glad that we have a President who reads. I'm delighted that he reads some fiction. Now, how do I get him copies of my books. I know he'd enjoy "Broody New Englander," would be fascinated by "Times to Try the Soul of Man," and absolutely know I was talking about Washington in "Memoirs From the Asylum." If you know Mr. Obama, please pass along this great reading recommendation; and be sure you check out my books for yourself.
