Boys Rule Boys Read! logoWe male children’s services librarians need to display some solidarity. So let’s give a cheer for the guys in Charlotte – Carl and Bill, who have issued a challenge just in time for Halloween on their Boys Rule Boys Read! blog. I’ll let Carl (my fellow mustachioed baby boomer) describe it, since he explains it in a style all his own. He’s asking his readers to send in comments about any book they’ve read and liked:

If we get 10 comments from any of you by October 31, I, Carl, will put on a dress and let Bill post the picture. But that’s not all—if we get 15 comments by October 31, I’ll put on a dress and wig! But that’s not all—if we get 20 comments by October 31, I’ll put on a dress, wig, and make-up! You heard me! So let’s start writing.

Does any reader of this blog know of a boy who might be interested in reading BRBR! and taking up the challenge?
