Harry Potter Stars Want YOU…To Read

harrypotterreadse.jpg

Need some extra motivation to get reading? The American Library Association (ALA) and the stars of Harry Potter are here to help!

Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint have joined the READ campaign, whose mission is to encourage children to read.

We've got to assume they're also looking to get adults to read more, because of the adult-themed books the Harry Potter folks are holding in their posters.

Here are some thoughts on the book selections…

The Master & The Margarita - Not sure how many kids are into reading Soviet satire

Romeo & Juliet - Good choice…but for somewhat older children

A Clockwork Orange - Not for kids. WTF, Rupert?!?!?

The posters with the age-inappropriate book choices go on sale on October 18. ALA Graphics will give Facebookers the chance to win these posters through a trivia contest here.

Do U think the Harry Potter stars will inspire U to read more?
