Jeremy likes reading stories now. It's been a week or two and he's definitely turned from grabbing and trying to eat books to smiling and sitting and looking at the pages. Harry was always more patient and/or interested in books and would sit through the same story a couple of times in a row. Jeremy usually lasts through a story and a half tops, but that's OK. Like Harry, it's Byron Barton and Men at Work that seems to be Jeremy's early favorite, along with Barton's Trains and Planes. Interestingly, Harry is drawn to these books, too, even though they're really below him now. Sometimes while I'm reading to Jeremy, Harry will call the next line out from across the room. Harry even likes to joke about how Trains and Planes are the same story, calling the appropriate line from the other book.
