[Brady]: My gosh, I can’t believe the Reading Regatta is over!
[Auntie Obvious]: I know, right??? And I can’t believe that you are officially a Middle Schooler now! I’m so proud! ::bursts into tears::
[Brady]: Dude, take a chill pill. And get a calculator, because we need to tally up our points! This week, I read The Secrets of Dumbledore screenplay, which earned me a whopping 500 points, plus 200 points for the Point Break, leaving me with a final score of 7,560 points.
[Auntie Obvious]: Dude, way to run up the score. Just kidding. I don’t think that’s a thing in reading, only football. This week, I read Fortune & Glory: Twisted Twenty-Seven for 250 points, which gives me a total of 3,215. You totally smoked me, even without the Point Break and the double points for kids.
[Brady]: So what are you going to read post-Reading Regatta?
[Auntie Obvious]: SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!
[Brady]: I can’t understand you.
[Auntie Obvious]: The Princess and the Scoundrel by Beth Revis comes out on Tuesday. And I CAN’T WAIT!!!!!! Do you want to borrow it when I’m done?
[Brady]: My next read is probably going to be a Spider-Man comic, but I don’t know for sure. Maybe Rick Riordan’s The Tyrant’s Tomb – I got kinda sidetracked re-reading Harry Potter (for the third time). And I can’t wait for the new High Republic books to come out in the fall. No thanks on The Princess and the Scoundrel. Too much romance.
[Auntie Obvious]: Sigh. There will probably be like three pages of romance. But suit yourself. Speaking of Star Wars, how about that Andor trailer?
[Brady]: It looked amazing! It’s going to have twice as many episodes as Kenobi, and we get three on premiere day!
[Auntie Obvious]: Premiere party at my house! Time to SAY THE THING!
[Brady]: Keep Reading…Sail On! And check back with us for news about the Fall Flight Reading Regatta, where you read four books of your choice between September 1st and October 1st.
