~Following My Own Flow~
My son has to read 3 books this summer, and that's fine. For his first book, he picked a Goosebumps book, so I decorated a few rooms with creepy Halloween stuff.
Do kids still like Goosebumps books?
My kids loved them. That and "Choose your own adventure" books.
They used to write their own Goosebumps stories, too.
I gave them my old manual typewriter to write them on.
They were pretty hilarious.
Fantasy is the most popular genre, though. Anything about wizards, witches, magic, dragons, .... they want to read it.
And, of course, you have those kids that CAN read well, but they really hate it so they find the thinnest book they can find no matter what it's about. I have kids reading on a 4th grade level that I have to have little talks with when they only want to read Clifford or Biscuit.

I do not get unemployment in the summer. That's an interesting idea, though. I wonder if it's legal to do that... In our district we get to choose at the beginning of the year whether we want to be paid for 12 months or 9 months. I chose 9 months this past year and just saved money throughout the year to pay for my summer bills. My next paycheck will be in September.
