Guys Read & Gotta Keep Reading

Image from http://guysread.com/
It's Read Across America Day!  Earlier I posted some resources for this day from Lori's Latest Links.  I almost forgot one of my favorite sites ever! 

Guys Read is a great site to help encourage boys - ahem - make that young men - to read more.  The site is a manly site for manly men who like to read manly stories about men like themselves.  The book titles are organized into amazingly masculine categories, like "Action/Adventure," "Robots," "Dragons," "Scary," and my personal favorite "At least one explosion!"  Now what tough guy in your class wouldn't want to read books and stories about that stuff?

Don't miss these Gotta Keep Reading Videos (flash-mob variation of a certain popular song from a year or so ago.)
 Roosevelt Elementary School (Santa Monica, California) redux for a Readathon.  (nicely dubbed over with kid voices)
Ocoee (Florida) Middle School's original flash-mob video that made the Oprah show. Read How they did it
