Press Release Fun: New Guys Read Website
Psst! Wanna see something cool? You know how Jon Scieszka (our National Ambassador) is all about getting boys to read more? And how he used to have this website for it called Guys Read which was . . . okay, can I level with you here? It wasn’t that hot. All good intentions, but creaky. Snorefest, basically what I’m saying. Only here’s the thing… recently Jon and his crew decided to revamp the whole kerschmozzle. I’m talking new look, new blog, cool recommendations, and funny funny funny.
So now they’re introducing the brand new and improved www.guysread.com. Design King Sam Potts put it together and it looks fabulous. I’m particularly fond of the book categories. My favorite: Repairing shoes but are only written in Spanish and another one called At least one explosion (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory made that particular list).
And don’t listen to Kanye or anything. This site has it all. Go. Enjoy. Get your boys to see it.
