For some, choosing to listen to an audiobook rather than flipping through book pages will be more interesting,

more rewarding, and even more educational."

Guys Write for Guys Read (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)

"So look around ...for something you like. You don't have to read in any order. You don't have to like everything your read.

It is not required reading. It's reading to find what you like... I know you are going to find something in here, because these things are funny, action-packed, sad, goofy, gross, touching, stupid, true, and all very short."
