I was wondering if anyone knew of any sites where a child could read a book and then take a quiz  for reading the book and get a "prize" or where they can keep track of the books that they read and get prizes for the number of books that they read?  I am hoping to get my kids more into reading and less on the computer as far as just playing.

Try bookadventure.org.  That's the only site I know of that meets all of your requirements.  Another great site is raz-kids.com, but while they do online stories and quizzes, they do not have a reward system in place.

Pizza Hut has the Book It program but you track that yourself and turn in the coupons, it isn't online.

Barnes and Noble has a summer reading program where they can earn free books and most libraries have summer reading programs. Not useful to you right now, but something to kep in mind for this summer.

Hope you can spark their interest.
