Trombetta, S. (2015, August 14) 9 Books to read if your are someone who “hates” reading, because there is a book out there for even you Retrieved from http://www.bustle.com/articles/104059-9-books-to-read-if-you-are-someone-who-hates-reading-because-there-is-a-book

Summary:
This web article focuses on high interest, easy-to-read, highly circulated books that most non-avid readers would find pleasurable.  The article reminds us that not all books need to be classics, critically acclaimed, or award winners to be a pleasure to read.    
Evaluation:
Like the author of the article said, I too am always stunned when people say “they don’t enjoy reading”.  Many of those who say they don’t enjoy reading haven’t either found the right genre or the perfect book to pull them in.  Or possibly they were force fed the “classics” like many of us were in high school and as a result look at reading as a virtual whopping.  Obviously there is a time and place for the classics like Moby Dick and Shakespeare but perhaps opening up to new classics such as The Kite Runner or Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolf? could open the world of reading to so many new patrons.
