Product Description

From the Back Cover

Most teens already know what wealth and just-plain-fun books contain. What is sometimes missing is the encouragement to make time for reading in the middle of a busy life. Getting excited about books is contagious, and so is the reading habit. The whole family needs all the encouragement it can get, especially teenagers. Read for Your Life is more than inspiration to read. Gladys Hunt discusses how to read a book, what makes a good book, what questions to ask, and how to discern between good, better, and best. She has a way of making you want to read, while helping you to make the most of the opportunity. To help you choose what to read, Barbara Hampton has reviewed more than 300 books. Her recommendations run the gamut from classics like A Tale of Two Cities to contemporary fiction like A Ring of Endless Light; from literary greats like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Alan Paton to moderns like Katherine Paterson and Chaim Potok. The book contains - Pointers on becoming a more perceptive reader - Tips on how to enjoy poetry, fantasy, and fiction - An annotated list of over 300 book recommendations - Hundreds of plot synopses - A complete index to authors and titles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reading for MY life! Feb. 14 2001
By "lcset" - Published on Amazon.com
This book is an excellent resource. From it, you will discover books that, if read by your teenager (or yourself) will build character and relationship. The second half of the book is where the treasure is. Get it.

I am currently teaching 9th & 10th grade English. This has been a very user friendly resource for both myself and my students. The first section of the book explains clearly and concisely critical literacy. The second half of the book has acomprehensive list of books for suggested reading. The books have been thoughtfully selected and one can feel assured that these are books worth reading.
