Move Books’ vision is to grow and sustain boys’ appetite for reading—to move them to read for the long term.
Our mission is to cultivate a generation of boys who are recreational readers, who will choose their own books and don’t have to be led. We want boys to be compelled and inspired to read on their own because the stories and experiences mean something to them. We want to change the way boys look at reading.
We hope to excite them with adventure, fantasy, mystery, and humor and give them the confidence to read more. We want boys to become emotionally invested, finding the books they love.
In addition, librarians and teachers now have a trusted source they can use to recommend boy-centered books to students and parents. Parents and grandparents will have more choices for their sons, grandsons, nephews and youths in their lives.
Focusing on middle-grade books for boys, Move Books hopes to move boys to read for the long term – one reader at a time.
