12 Steps

I observed reading recovery again yesterday. (Just as an aside, the little boy I got to see was enough to convince even the most anti-child individual to become a teacher. I've never seen a harder or more eager worker and he's just so darn cute.)

I'm becoming fascinated by the idea of reading recovery (RR) as a 12-step program; if just a little concerned that I might take the metaphor too far. Having done some research on the 12 steps of AA I am even more concerned that attempting the metaphor will become blasphemous. I was unaware of how large a role God plays in the 12 steps. While I might view books, reading, authors, etc. as Gods, others may feel quite differently.

What would the 12 steps of RR look like?
