  3. What a terrific idea to encourage children to read. While the house is an interesting design, I do hear archispeak when I read 'connect with surrounding nature'.

  14. Love the idea of reading to my hairdresser while she's giving me a haircut - only it wouldn't work for me, because I can't read without my specs on, and I can't keep my specs on while my hair is being cut... :-)

  31. All three are inspiring...but, God bless Courtney Holmes! Children reading to him for a free hair cut is absolutely an inspiration. My children still love to read because they were brought up in a house full of books. I read to all four of them at bedtime. They are now ages 42 to 52 and still reading. My grandchildren were raised to read also and they all love it!

    BTW...I finished the second book in the trilogy by Nora Roberts and I am half way through the third and final book "Blood Magic"...it has been a wonderful read :)

    Have a beautiful weekend~
