Really? You just like to see your words in print?

Did you want a list of all the books that Xie read? Obviously, he was part of the summer reading program, which it said in the article.

When "winners are selected at random" I think its a fair question to ask why the reporter mentions nothing about what was read.

For the sake of promoting reading, a list of a few books he read would have added a lot to this joke of and article.
