Have you ever convinced someone to read a book, a series, or a whole genre? What book(s) and who was it? Did they like it?
Yes! I've done this quite a few times, but the one that stands out the most is probably my first one.
It was a recommendation to my little sister's best friend. She HATED reading with a passion, and I convinced her to read Skeleton Creek by Patrick Carman. I knew that the interactive style would hook her.
She LOVED it, even if she was semi-terrified of the videos. She's gone on to read a few other series I've recommended to her. She's not an avid reader now, but she does read for fun sometimes.
That was the whole goal! To get her to see the fun in reading. Mission accomplished!
