Looking for some great books for teen boys? Check out GuysLitWire, a new collaborative book blog. In an effort to keep content fresh, timely, and varied, we update the blog every weekday, with different bloggers posting each day at I'll be posting regularly on the last day of the month in addition to other random posts.

Be a Part of GLW

Colleen from Chasing Ray is in charge of the project. If you or anyone you know (parents, ask your sons; librarians and booksellers, ask your patrons; teachers, ask your students) would like to participate in the GLW blog, please email colleen(at)chasingray(dot)com or leave a message at her blog.

As regular readers of the Bildungsroman blog know, I'm actively involved in readergirlz. I run their website and head up the postergirlz advisory council. Guys Lit Wire and readergirlz are not directly connected, but they do support each other, and each project actively encourages BOTH genders to read and participate in book discussions.

The Birth of GuysLitWire

How did this all come about? First, Sara Lewis Holmes went to the store to get a book for her son. She also had a conversation with her husband about books for boys, partially inspired by Colleen's post at Chasing Ray. Then Sara posted about it some more. aquafortis came up with the name GuysLitWire and created a design for the blog. After Colleen posted about it again, things started moving forward - and here we are now.
