Can E-Books and Libraries Coexist?

E-reader owners read more books in a year than their print-only counterparts. Is print really a dying medium?

140+ Books for the Boys of YA

140+ Books for the Boys of YA | Teen Reader's Advisory | Scoop.it

Fabulous collection for a reading challenge or as a spur to get teens to debate what should be dropped or added:

"...we’d like to present this wall of over 140 books that we think will speak to the boys of YA. They’re full of adventure, magic, real-world issues, and romance. Some of them are even written by - *gasp* - women. They give us all kinds of male figures: strong, brave, struggling, emotional, confused, and yes - even a few great role models. Most of all, they give us great stories for any reader -- almost all of these books appeal to us as adult women even though we are probably not the target audience from a marketing perspective. That being said, while we do think that there will always be outlier readers who feel comfortable reading anything and everything (and we love them for it), we also realize that it might be a struggle to hand-sell a book with a girl in a dress on the cover or a romance-driven plot to the "average" boy. We'd love to think of this list as a tool for educators, librarians, parents, and teens to find a great read for the boys in their lives, but anyone who enjoys a great story will find something in this wall of books."

Eight YA Authors Recommend Books for Teenage Guys

Eight YA Authors Recommend Books for Teenage Guys | Teen Reader's Advisory | 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.
