I'd like to suggest a web site for the kids in your life. It's fun, it's free, and you can find it at

Welcome to Reading Rewards!

The reading incentive program for kids that actually gets them off their computers, games consoles, etc, and encourages them to read!

How does it work? It's simple. Kids accumulate 'RR' Miles on the site, which they can exchange for fun and sometimes silly things on the site: joke of the day, video of the day (always safe, kid-friendly videos our editors find), mini-games, and more.

How do they accumulate RR Miles? By reading, and telling us what and how much they read! They'll get bonuses for reviewing their books, and making recommendations to friends.

A fun dashboard gives them a quick view of their friends, their status updates, what they're reading and how much. This actually makes reading really cool!

As an added bonus, parents and/or other sponsors can set up and track their own reading reward programs. For example, 1 outing to the movies for every 600 minutes reading. It's up to you!

Best of all, it's free! Just register, sign in, and get started. It's fast, simple and easy to use. We're hoping our community of young readers will grow and grow and get kids talking and sharing about their books. If an occasional bribe from parents is necessary, so be it!

So sign up, and take us for a spin!

I have a book list on my blog at called "Favorite Books for Reluctant Boy Readers" that I would like to share with you. My readers also say are great for enthusiastic boy readers.

Looks like a great idea. Our son does the accelerated reader program in school—they have to read for 30 minutes every mornng in homeroom, and their AR test scores are added into their English grade.
