I agree, reading is not a competition. In fact, my we are considering the Hunger Games books for our One Community book discussion (I work in a library) because it's just a WELL-WRITTEN book (series) no matter what its reading level might be. A good book is a good book at any age. I think much of what people here are saying they are "censoring" is the piss-poor books that are actually destructive rather than constructive. Reading level isn't the only issue. If your child keeps reading vacuous drivel, then some direction might be called for.
