Footballers challenge boys' reading apathy
A National Literacy Trust study has revealed that a third of boys agree with the statement "I can’t find anything to read that interests me". Maybe this will help: the NLT has launched the 2010 Premier League Reading Stars and the Scottish Premier League Reading Stars seasons. The latter features 12 players from different clubs, including both halves of the Old Firm, talking about what they love reading. There are also interactive games and downloads.
