Stephanie sent out a reminder to everybody on 18 October 2010 that this is Teen Read Week. It is important to remember to continue to promote reading for fun to teens. Stephanie included some tips on how to encourage reading among teens. Whether you have a teen or not, many of the books are perfect for adults and as always, reading for pleasure should be promoted to everybody, not just teens.
