Open the Paper, Read a Book

For those of you who don't read the North Bay Nugget, they recently introduced a project to promote reading within families. The project is called North Bay Reads Together; and every Saturday the Nugget will publish chapters from the book called "Three on Three" in section B12.

In theory I believe this is an excellent idea for the local paper to do, but I have an issue with the book. I looked it up on Chapters and it doesn't seem like the kind of book that a lot of kids these days would be interested in. First off, it was published 12 years ago and the trends in novels have obviously changed as the years go by (as does everything else). Other than that, I think that's a great idea to promote literacy in the community, and bringing families closer together by providing an activity to do together on a Saturday.
Perhaps a better choice of book next time?!
