PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING WITH GUNS OR SWORDS:

Books for boys (Linda Wilson Fuoco, August 29, 2007, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette)

One of the keys to getting boys to read is to find books, magazines and newspapers that interest them.

There are many book lists on the Internet. One that comes highly recommended by many people, including Susan Claus, a librarian at Northland Public Library in Ross, is www.guysread.com. It was founded by Jon Scieszka, who is the author of popular children's books, including "The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales."

This is just a plug for the Time Warp Trio books Scieszka wrote. My kids love them.

Also, one of the worst book related fights in our house was in whose book case "The Stinky Cheese Man" would reside.
