Help save BOOK IT!

http://www.petitiononline.com/bookit07/petition.html



Remember that program you may or may not have done as a child, where you had to read a certain number of books per month, & you'd be rewarded with a pizza?

Well, members of of the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood are protesting it, saying that it promotes childhood obesity.

Now, I don't know about you guys-- but to me, ONE, one topping, CHILD SIZE pizza [four teeny slices, you know the kind?] ONCE a MONTH, doesn't equal obesity. I think it's a great way to encourage reading in a society that's completely overwhelmed with other distractions.

If you agree with me, please sign the petition.
