I have been reading Howl's Moving Castle aloud to my kids, in particular the 9yo (who is almost 10, ack!). My younger daughter is notoriously picky about what she reads and usually refuses to open any book she doesn't already know she will like. The solution is to read her new books aloud, so she gets hooked on them without having to take the plunge herself. Howl's Moving Castle makes a wonderful read-aloud--the humor comes through wonderfully and it's just really fun.
I hope you've had some fun with DWJ Month, and I'm looking forward to next year already. Maybe by then I'll have something neat to show off.
