NYT: “Boys and Reading: Is there any hope?

Saw this in the NYT. The author says teen girls will read books about male and female characters while teen boys will NOT read books about females.

True or false?  Let’s talk.

    Not sure. My own daughter has always been a voracious reader, and read everything when she was a teen.

    My son, OTOH, reads mostly nonfiction, and always has.

    Hmm. Can’t go by me, I guess.

    TOTALLY true! Not only did my 15-yr-old son enjoy the Twilight Saga but he re-read some of the books to boot! ;)
