Boys Reading about Girls


“I know it’s about a girl…but I promise, it’s REALLY good!!”

Recently, young adult author Shannon Hale started what has turned into a very lively online discussion about boys reading books with girl protagonists (or, rather not reading). I’ve been following her posts and the reader comments about this topic – so interesting! 

When Shannon announced a contest, asking for photos showing “real men” reading “girl books,” I knew I had to pop out from my maternity leave to write this short blog post and submit the photo above. Olivia, the ultimate girly-girl, is always welcome at our boy-dominated house!
