If you follow my blog, you know I don’t normally feature websites, but I thought this one was kind of neat – neat enough that it needed to be shared with you. I am not affiliated in any way with the site, but I’m all about getting kids to read more.
Guys Read (www.guysread.com)
This site is specifically focused on getting boys to read by providing lists of books that boys would be interested in. Check out the “Guys & Reading” page for reasons why boys don’t read as well or as much as girls. Check out the “Books for Guys” to find books for guys of all age ranges, sorted by topic. Topics range from poetry to graphic novels, from ghosts to pirates and everything in between.
When you find a specific book that interests you and click on it, you’ll find a description of the book, the page count, whether or not it is part of a series, the appropriate age level and the average rating from other users (you can also rate the book yourself).
