Books for Boys that Aren't “Books for Boys” | The Hub

Books for Boys that Aren't “Books for Boys” | The Hub | Reading, Books & Book Trailers | Scoop.it

"I realized it doesn’t matter if a book is “for” a guy or a girl; the gender of the intended audience tends to get all mixed up when you factor in the power of a good story. Boys like stories; girls like stories. Readers in general like stories. We need to forget what we think about boys and reading and find them the stories they want."

Eight YA Authors Recommend Books for Teenage Guys

Eight YA Authors Recommend Books for Teenage Guys | Reading, Books & Book Trailers | Scoop.it

"When confronted with over a hundred books, it can be really helpful to have expert recommendations – sort of like reader’s advisory about the reader’s advisory, if that’s not too meta for you all.  While we were putting together yesterday's wall - 140+ Books for the Boys of YA – we thought we might branch out a little bit and ask some of the authors featured in the wall itself for recommendations."
This post covers an impresive variety of quality (and fun) books for the young & young at heart - or even those who can just barely remember either state.
