Bud Norris was a pretty big R.L. Stine fan back in the day

Bud Norris became a member of the Millionaires Club on Wednesday.

No, he didn't sign a contract extension. the Millionaires Club at Golfcrest Elementary School in Houston is for students who read a minimum of five books over their summer break.

Norris found out about the group through his girlfriend's friend, Rebecca Irey, who is a teacher at Golfcrest Elementary. The right-hander spoke to the kids this week about the importance of reading.

"It was a lot of fun, and I saw a lot of cool kids,” Norris said. "They got all dressed up for the event, which is pretty cool. They got to dress up like millionaires for the day so some kids were in tuxes and stuff."

The children asked Norris about the books he liked to read when he was their age, and he said, "Goosebumps was big on my list back in the day."
