If book clubs consider reading an area of study, Mr. Books Club operates with mottos such as "reading as a way of life" and "children who enjoy reading." Having to analyze, write up something, and take a test whenever one reads a book could have been a reason to keep a distance away from the books. Children would have done such a good job just by having fun "reading." Mr. Book’s Club’s thought is that we can have analytical perspectives, rich vocabulary, and logical thinking becomes our second nature while enjoying, experiencing, and wanting books without even realizing it.
