1218 I really like this website called Bibliotravel to help find books which take place in a specific country.

One book I really enjoyed which was set in Denmark is Smilla's Sense of Snow.

Recently I read The Keeper of Lost Causes which I also give high marks.

I have read all of Bolton's books and have really enjoyed them. I am jealous of your signed copy! :)

1218 I believe the best way to help our children become good readers is to help them find books they enjoy and make time for the family to read together everyday. I find by getting them ready for bed earlier and giving them the option to read or go to bed they always choose to read. Take them to the library, get them a goodreads account and let them see you reading.
Many don't read because their early experiences of reading were from teachers who did not teach literature that appeals to them. They view reading as something non enjoyable instead of "fun."

I think the ereader technology will help make reading cool again but if parents and teachers don't help develop a love of reading and a love of learning less and less people will read.

Good luck with your paper!
