Reading Musts for Writers: Boys, Books and Reading

An article about boys and books made it to the front page of Friday’s Wall Street Journal.  It seems boys will only read books if they are really grosslike these books.  I don’t have boys, but I’d like to think it wouldn’t take gory details to entice them to read.

I also found an article in today’s New York Times that is the first of a series of how the Internet and other digital means is changing how people read.  Want to know more?  Here’s  The New York Times Web Extra of different articles on reading in the digital age.

What do you think about all this?

Consider yourself warned: I write books about rebels. I'm also a postergirlz for readergirlz, a literary advisory group for teens. Who knew going back to the teenage years would be so rewarding?
