What to do when you hate the books your kid is reading ...

First, the good news: The 9-year-old loves books. Always with the books. He's a big reader -- at bedtime, in the backseat and at the breakfast table, which is why many of his favorites are frequently drenched in syrup. There are certainly worse things to be into, such as firecrackers or the Disney Channel or almost literally anything else, so I understand that complaining that your kid reads too much is a little like whining how you can't get him to put the carrots down long enough to shovel a Baconator in there.
