You may have noticed that we haven't posted a whole lot in the past month. It happens. I've read a lot of books lately, but none of them felt quite like something I ought to recommend. Dan Brown's Inferno? Not very good, compared to the other three in the series. Weird Al: The Book? A bit underwhelming, plus not super relevant to kids of this generation.
So I've got nothing.
And so do kids, sometimes.
You want to get them to read. You've offered all of the books that we've recommended, but they've read it all, or maybe they just aren't taking anything. If the boy in your life reads occasionally, then there probably isn't anything to worry about. Maybe they've just hit a dry spell. It happens to me sometimes.
Maybe you've just read a heavy book and are mentally exhausted. Maybe you found a cool game that distracted you for a few weeks (worse if it's a mobile or portable game). Whatever the case, one distraction and he's off books. If he isn't reading anything right now, just wait it out. Chances are he'll find something.
(Note that this really doesn't apply to guys who don't ever read at all. That's a separate issue entirely. Another post for another day.)
