Teenagers' book choices 'too easy'

Teenagers' book choices 'too easy' | Librarians in the real world | Scoop.it
Teenagers are selecting "easier reads" in their book choices, rather than more challenging classics, according to a survey published for World Book Day.
Deborah Welsh's insight:

This is a tough one, especially when airport fiction beckons. Sometimes you just want an easy read for some unchallenging downtime and kids' choices are the same. The problem is when they don't move beyond the simple.
