A Challenge

"Reading is a gift. It's something you can do almost anytime and anywhere. It can be a tremendous way to learn, relax, and even escape."  Richard Carlson

Here at Along Cotton Road and our sister blog, A Feel Good Novel, we're issuing a challenge to readers and visitors to list cherished Books for Boys, and favorite "Feel Good" novels. 

Let's avoid the well-worn Harry Potter series and the Wimpy Kid phenomenon when making suggestions to get boys reading. Surely, there are works, new and old, that have been influential in providing boy readers with the grounding and role models that inspire.

As to "feel good" novels, let's hear from those of you who have enjoyed Jan Karon's Father Tim series set in mythical Mitford. Or, Rosamunde Pilcher's beloved novels set in Scotland or Cornwall.  Surely, there are others.
