Guys Read

What a fantastic project — just had to reblog this quickly, because it is the epitome of my proclaimed mission for this blog. Guys Read aims to make boys of all ages into lifelong readers, to combat stereotypes and trends of boys who don’t “like” reading.

This reminds me of a few things (text to self connection!): first, of a former high school classmate who wrote, on the “Books” section of his Facebook profile, “I don’t like reading;” second, of a project my housemate is involved with, that donates books to prisoners across the US.

Many men I know are voracious readers, and this definitely speaks to the demographic I have grown up around and remained within as a young adult. But it is always worthwhile to remember that my demographic is not the same for the rest of the population! 😉
