10741 I'm very excited for Mockingjay! I became absolutely engrossed in Hunger Games and Catching Fire.

10741 I really enjoyed this article, Bobby! Thanks for posting it. I've got to say that this hits home because I grew up in a house where men didn't read. My father hated reading, I'm pretty sure he has a learning disability bu doesn't know it, and my brother hates it too. On the other hand, my mother, sister and I are voracious readers. I grew up with the assumption that reading was a female hobby.
However, working at the library the last ten years has changed my mind. I see plenty of men coming into the library to pick out books to read for pleasure or for educational purposes.
I think that majority of boys who are reluctant readers just need a male role model to follow. I applaud those dads who are able and willing to bring their young sons to my story times. I just know that they are raising the future male readers of America!

I'm even more excited now."

Did you know that Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs does the soundtrack? I love that!
