The Reluctant Reader.
Chambers, Aidan
This book is concerned with the approximately 60% of capable adolescent readers who have little or no inclination to read creative literature. The possible causes of this reluctance to read are examined and various solutions to the problems are discussed. Chapters focus on the reading interests and motivations of teenagers, on the reasons that good professional writers are discouraged from writing for this age group, and on the individual responsibilities of teachers, librarians, booksellers, and publishers in dealing with the problems of reluctant teenage readers. Appendixes include lists of outstanding works of literature for young people as well as lists of books and source material useful to those working with reluctant young readers. (JM)
