Eric's reading

The reason we weren't overly concerned with James' reading is the way Eric started reading. He also avoided reading like the plague and it wasn't because he couldn't read - he just didn't want to.
Through judicious use of audio books, bribery and compulsion Eric started to read more and found he actually like it! Having to read the rules for Lord of the Rings wargaming helped too. Boys seem to need more of a reason before they get into something.
Here he is reading Christ the King Lord of history (as part of schoolwork) in the middle of the loungeroom. So long as he found this a comfortable position in which to read, we weren't going to stop him!
