BWA HA HA HA HA HA!!!!!!
I have successfully checked out TWENTY girl books to boys today, even without brown covers (although I'm going home to look for stretchy covers to bring in)! No boy I asked turned me down! The 8th grade football players got aggressively pink books like Geek Magnet and Love at First Click, fantasy lovers got Graceling and Alanna: The First Adventure, a baseball fan got Butler's Sliding Into Home, and a boy who wanted a war book got Klass' Soldier's Secret. All of the boys were very open to suggestions and willing to read other things.
I told one boy early in the day that the book (Love at First Click, one of the First Kisses series) would give him insight into what girls wanted. He looked at the circulation card and saw that one girl he had dated read it, so he took it! He mentioned on his way out of the building that he was enjoying it.
Ah, every day should have an evil plan. I would have checked out more of these, but I also had five SSR classes and five research classes, so the day was busy. I would make this a challenge if I had any energy left.
