Boys into Books 11-14

Series: Riveting Reads Plus · Level: Secondary

This latest title in our Riveting Reads series has been specially commissioned by the Department for Education and Skills (DfES), responsible for schools in England, to support the reading needs of boys in Key Stage 3. The Boys into Books project aims to provide information about titles which might attract and enthuse boys of 11-14 about reading for pleasure, and is funded by the DfES. The booklist is available exclusively online as a searchable database and also as a downloadable PDF version.

State schools in England having at least 20 boys of this age group were also able to order 20 titles from the list, which were delivered, ready jacketed, free of charge, and also two sets of three Boys into Books posters and 450 postcards. The posters and postcards can also be downloaded online. The project ran until the end of August 2007, although this online edition will remain available for anyone to use, even if not eligible for free books.
